A letter from Mariah:
To be honest, neither Justin nor I expected to meet anyone online. We had both tried meeting people in a variety of ways, and nothing ever panned out. Not having much luck, we both decided to give online dating one more try.
I had only been on the site for a few days when I received an email from Justin. I wanted to keep it casual, so we met for coffee. We immediately realized there was something special between us.
After about a year and a half of dating, we were having breakfast at the same coffee shop where we had our first date. We spent the morning talking about our relationship and how it had all begun with that very first date. Justin began talking about the possibility of a proposal. Thinking he was joking, I teased him back. Before I knew what was happening, Justin lifted up his coffee cup and there was a ring sitting under his cup. And I said “No”.
Just kidding! Of course, I said, “Yes!”
You never know how your story is going to start. We didn’t expect ours to begin with a profile, but we wouldn’t have it any other way! We are so excited to begin planning our wedding and cannot wait for our next adventure.
