A love interest that began in the 9th grade. That’s how it all started with Chris and Vanessa. They sat near one another in their 9th grade class and were too shy to speak to one another. Fast forward to 2008 where Chris and Vanessa wound up at the same private party. Much different from the shy Chris that Vanessa remembered from the 9th grade, he was smitten over her right away. By the end of the night, Chris scored Vanessa’s phone number and sweetly asked her for a date to the beach.
Chris proposed to Vanessa after her College Graduation ceremony. After Vanessa had walked across the stage and all of the ceremony commotion was over, Chris swept Vanessa away on a romantic lunch to celebrate her graduation…or so she thought! During their meal, the skies got darker and darker which had Chris worried about his plan to propose on the beach after their meal. Right after they finished their meal, Chris requested a walk along the beach. Vanessa thought it was very strange, considering the weather was going down hill…and fast! She was reluctant, but agreed if only if he carried her there because she was wearing high heels. (hehe this makes me giggle!)
Chris carried Vanessa to the same location that he asked her to be his girlfriend. Wind was pushing sand everywhere and water drops began to form. Then, in the midst of a storm, Chris got down on one knee and asked Vanessa to spend the rest of her life with him. She of course said YES! Chris asked Vanessa to be his wife with a gorgeous black diamond ring, which is modern and edgy, just like Vanessa’s style.
After Vanessa said yes, Chris took her back to her graduation party and celebrated her graduation and engagement all in one day. What a day to remember!!
“According to East Asian belief, we are tied to our soulmate by a red string of fate.
The string may tangle, it may stretch…
But it will never break.
And that regardless of time, place, or circumstances,
We will always be together.”
