My crazy story

Recommended Posts

Me and Tim met when I was a freshman in high school

We where both in Theatre and kind of ventured in the same click.


After graduation he went off to college and I stayed back and went to a community collage later to join the Air Force :)


We later found each other on facebook where I learned that he also had joined the air force (we are both air force brats)


When I was deployed to Iraq we started emailing alot more and so when I got home I took a trip to see him. We hit it off really well and had a great time together. When I was on my way home I got 5 mins away from his house and he called to tell me he loved me :)


We had been spending as much time as we could, living 15 hours from one another until he had to deploy.

When he was deployed we where on web cam and voice chat and I asked him to marry me (yes I asked him! ) he thinking I meant that second told me there was no way he was deployed I just started laughing and I said no lets get married after I get out of the military in Aug of 09... He was like wait are you serious and I told him I was I wanted to get married to him!

He told me that I could start planing if I wanted but that did not count as a proposal and we where not engaged until he asked me... I let him believe that hahaha


After he got home from his deployment he came to visit me and I could not get off work so he borrowed my car when I was working and one day after I got home from work he told me he made me something, I took it and it was a comic book he had drawn himself with him and me as the main characters and once our characters defeated the bad guy his character wrote down to my character "Will you marry me" I then looked at him and he got down on one knee and asked me if I would marry him

I just cracked up and said yes... Oh and was given the most beautiful ring he almost dropped getting the wedding ring out of the middle of it :)

Wow, that's a great story, Jeni!


My brother is in the military, and he served over in Afganistan. A while back I got to photograph a wedding at the Naval Academy in Annapolis. I love military weddings!


Make sure that Tim wears his dress blues at your wedding!


Best wishes,
