Third times the charm!! (See The Video Below)
The timing isn’t always right, but eventually destiny steps in. All you need is patience.
Being able to wait is a sign of true love and patience.
Anyone can say “I love you,” but not everyone can wait and prove that it’s true.
Our original wedding date was May 17, but we rescheduled in March realizing that the pandemic made that impossible for us. Seeing that July 2 was available at our venue, we tried to reschedule for July 2 as that is our 2 year engagement anniversary. While we’re still not able to have a formal ceremony and reception for our guests, we are signing our license and officially getting married that day. We have pushed back our ceremony and reception again (third times the charm) to Thursday, October 1st, 2020. Hopefully, this will be the date that sticks and we can celebrate with all our family and friends. <3
A little about our journey~~
Justin and I met on Tinder in 2016 shortly after Justin’s 30th birthday in late summer. Our first date was at a dive bar called “the stuffed olive”. Justin picked the place because it was one of the closest places to us that had a pool table there, and he decided he wanted to show me up in some billiards. When I asked the bartender if she knew how to make an orgasm (my favorite mixed drink-equal parts Kailua, amaretto, and Bailey's), the woman at the bar had no idea and I gave her my phone as a recipe reference. When she returned the phone she addressed us as married or husband and wife or something, to which we were both like WHOA WHOA! It’s just a first date!! Maybe she missed her calling of becoming a psychic by entertaining her bartending skills 🤣🤣. Our first date went well and we grew together quickly. Justin moved into the condo where I was living 5 months after we officially started dating, which we’ve now called our ‘shoebox’ and have completely outgrown. Meeting Justin’s friends and family for the first time was fun. No matter who I met or how long they’ve known him I got one consistent remark from everyone, “we never thought Justin would settle down with someone”.
Cut to July 2, 2018, we are at Disney for a National dance competition for one of the dance schools I was working for at the time. Justin had never been to Disney, and I was elated to show him every square inch of why this is the best place on earth. We got there early to have some time to do the parks and attractions before the competition started. Little did I know he had some pretty big plans. He had asked my father for his blessing to ask me to marry him before we left. In his suitcase, then through park security, then in his right cargo pocket was a beautiful ring he picked out to get down on one knee in front of Cinderella’s Castle and ask me for forever. I had no idea, I was completely stunned, and he was also brilliant enough to get the whole thing on video. ~~
