How We Met

We met in middle school through showchoir and church. We mainly met through being on the worship team together at our local church. He started out on drums and I started out singing and that sparked interest in each other. Eventually we became friends and started to write songs in Cam's basement in order to spend time together. Eventually he began to sing as well at church and we grew closer through worshipping together. As our faith grew so did our relationship and now here we are planning our wedding.

The Proposal


On December 17th 2022 we went out on our yearly Christmas date. Cam drove us to all of our favorite spots to look at lights and get some of our favorite foods. While we were out my family was secretly meeting at Cam's house to hide in the basement and wait for us to get there. After we had gone out and Cam had stalled long enough for everyone to get to his house we went home. We normally enter his house through his garage but his garage door opener had conveniently "broken" so we had to enter through the front door. When we walked in Cam had decorated his kitchen/living room with fake snow and lights to create a winter wonderland and an area for us to dance to some of our favorite Christmas carols. The last song played was Almond Eyes by Brandon Lake. At the end of the song Cam spun me out then dropped to one knee and pulled out the ring. I can't quite remember what he said as I only remember bawling my eyes out but once we had our moment he signaled for everyone to join us and we got to celebrate with both of our families.
