Monique Mejia – I chose love <3
Couple’s Love Song: Then – Brad Paisley
Justine and I met online, through a famously fishy website. I had just gotten out of a bad relationship and wasn’t looking for anything specific; I was just browsing who was out there in the world. Justine messaged me the morning after I set up my online account, and we chatted all day. The next day, April 7, 2016, I bit the bullet and asked her to lunch. She accepted! We were going to meet at a local burger place, called City Pub. I, of course, got there super early. Justine, on the other hand, was super late! I feared the worst; that I was stood up. But, nope! She just went the wrong way on C470 and ended up in the middle of nowhere. She finally made it and our first date lasted for four whole hours!! It was like we had known each other our whole lives 💜 What’s funny, is that our next date, that following Sunday, I went to the wrong theater and was so late that we missed our movie. Luckily, we were immediately able to laugh about our crazy situations. It was love at first sight for her, and it was “wow, I wonder if…” for me. We have been inseparable ever since. I, with all of my doubts, anxiety, and past failures chose to give love a chance ❤ Justine has shown me that true love is patient, it is kind, it is genuine; true love knows no boundaries, has no judgements, and is something that can heal old wounds. Justine gave me a promise ring on her birthday in September 2016; and she made that promise come true in the very beginning of 2018, in front of family and friends. 💍😍 Unbeknownst to me, she had been planning this proposal for a very long time. And she couldn’t have made it any more perfect (the link to the video is below). We are so much in love and can’t wait to share our love with family and friends at our wedding.
Proposal Video Here. (side note: she gave me a book that she had made in August of 2016, the last page was a picture of her kneeling on one knee proposing).
