The Art of Proposing: Lauren & Cameron

The Art of Proposing Cameron & Lauren   The Meet Cute: I was very hesitant to meet Cameron at first. I had been set up by friends before, and it never ended well. I finally gave in, and agreed to meet him after his GCU baseball game with the rest of our friends. We went to the teams favorite sports bar, Zipp’s, for dinner after the game. I sat across from Cameron, and we talked like we had known each other for years. I was almost embarrassed at how much he made me laugh.

As we waited for our room to be ready, we sat by the creek and enjoyed a nice glass of French Rose’. We checked into the room, and it was the most beautiful cottage I had ever seen. We even had our own outdoor shower and creek-side patio! As we walked to our “scheduled wine tasting,” I notice that he was taking me in an odd direction. He tried to convince me that it was a short cut. He walked me to this beautiful secluded gazebo with an amazing chandelier and a table set for two, with two glasses of champagne.
