I'm keeping you forever & for always
Deric & I met at a time that I really needed a best friend and he became just that. I had just graduated from high school and was starting a whole new chapter in my life. Right off the bat I realized I had never had as much fun with someone as I did with him. Things were just so simple. Our love was so easy. One of my favorite things about Deric is that he loves everything about me & he makes sure I know that every single day. Even on my worst days he knows how to make me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world. He believes in me and encourages me to follow my dreams. He pushes me to become a better me by making my fears and doubts seem so small. We balance each other out. My weaknesses or his strengths and vise versa. As the song says "life with you makes perfect sense, you're my best friend"
I knew he was the one I wanted to spend the rest of my life with when I realized that he was the one I needed when something amazing happened to me or when something awful happened to me. He's the one I run to with every situation.
After four years of dating Deric proposed to me on August 25, 2013. We were on a cruise with our best friends. I'm a wedding photographer and Deric knows just how important pictures are to me so he set it up to where our proposal would be captured. We were all dressed up for the captains so I asked if we could go up to the top deck to take pictures. I snapped a few of my best friend and her boyfriend and then handed them the camera so they could take ours. As I walked over to the railing overlooking the ocean Deric pulled me back and said "But in these pictures I want you to wear this" that's when he pulled out the ring, got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was perfect, just perfect!
I'm so excited to spend a lifetime with the man I love more than I ever thought was possible & every day my love for him grows more & more!
