This month, we’re kicking off a new series on the blog titled She Said Yes! A nod to one of our favorite sites, How He Asked, this series will spotlight Invision brides and how their beaus proposed.
Today, meet bride Sarah Beth, and find out how her now-husband put a ring on it. (Pardon us while we swoon!)
How They Met
“This story is always a little embarrassing for me! We met at a local bar in downtown Auburn and were introduced by a mutual friend. I’ll never forget him saying ‘Oh, you’re that cute girl in engineering!’ He asked for my number, and I said ‘Don’t you know this isn’t how this works? But, you can have mine if you’d like!’ The next day he asked me out to lunch, and I hesitatingly obliged. We went to lunch, and what was supposed to be a one-hour lunch turned into a three-hour date filled with nervous giggles, stories and laughter. After that, we both knew we didn’t want to spend another day without each other in our lives.”
How He Asked
“I’ve always wanted to go to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and see the Christmas lights, but the year before we got engaged, we waited until the last minute and the tickets sold out. The next year, Matt surprised me with tickets, and I was so excited! When we got there, we got some yummy hot chocolate, walked the winding paths of the garden and enjoyed the lights. Matt wandered a little bit behind me the whole time, and I asked him, ‘Matt, why don’t you walk with me?’ He responded, ‘I just like to watch you and I want to take it all in.’ I didn’t think twice about it. As we got to the end of the gardens, Matt looked at me and said, ‘Let me take your hot chocolate.’ I said, ‘Why?!’ He responded, ‘I need both of your hands to talk to you.’ I looked into his eyes, and I knew exactly what was about to happen. He got down on one knee and asked, ‘Will you marry me?’ Of course, I said yes!! We went to his parents’ house afterwards, and he surprised me with my parents, some close family friends and my favorite – my doggy. I’ll never forget it.”
