Is hosting this contest and it's wedding themed!
We met at a church dance when I was 15 he was 14. I knew immediately I was going to marry him (creepy?) and I even told all my friends that. They of course laughed at me! We danced and I told him I thought he was cute and whatever. We saw each other off and on for the next 2 years but never actually dated. In September 2002 we met again at a church dance. Joey had just broken up with his girlfriend and I had broken up with a boyfriend about a month prior.
Thanks to his friend, Chad, we spent the whole night together talking and laughing. Chad kept telling Joey he needed to ask me to a dance. I asked for his number and we went our separate ways. I was strong. I waited until Monday to call him. I asked him out on our first date. So romantic. We went to "On The Border" Mexican food and mini-golfing. Joey kissed me on the golf course and asked if we could start a relationship. After 2 weeks..I was in love. I knew it. I knew he was my soulmate. I of course was NOT going to tell him that. I didn't want to scare him away!
About a week after my realization we were talking on the phone. He sounded funny and weird and I thought he was going to break up with me. This is what he said "don't be scared.. I love you". My heart did a flip and I started to cry. Lame!
I graduated high school and moved to Utah to attend college. We decided to do a long distance thing, and while it was hard we made it work. After he graduated we moved to Las Vegas together while he attended school.
In December 2004 I got mono and went home so my mommy could take care of me! Joey came home for Christmas and come over so we could exchange gifts. I was positive he was going to propose, (I had driven his car a couple weeks before and found a couple of pictures of engagement rings..) I was trying to keep myself together! After all our gifts were given there was no ring. I was disappointed. THEN! He says, "I have one more gift for you" and pulls out his guitar. He starts to sing me a song that he wrote, just for me! The last lines of the song are:
"I have a question now,
what will the answer be?
Sarah my love,
Will you marry me?"
and then he pulled out a rose and inside was my ring. I was so taken aback by the song I cried.. and I was trying not to throw up! I of course said "yes" and then we hugged and kissed :)
I had always known where I wanted to be married. When I was 12 my dad and I were taking my older sister to a summer camp at BYU. On the way into Salt Lake you can see the Bountiful Temple. When I saw it was dark and the lights were on. It looked like a floating castle. I knew that is where I wanted to go. I spent my whole life dreaming about it.
On July 12, 2005 I married my prince in my castle. The day was hot (like 115 or something) and I had forgotten my veil and my shoes. But it was perfect. I love him more today than I did then. He is my everything. My hero. My eternal companion.
(yes his eyes are closed!)
