San Diego, CA Love Story + Proposal : Josh and Kelly

Couple in San Diego, CA

How They Met:

Josh and Kelly met while they were in college. They were in the same chemistry class and both clearly had crushes on each other, but Kelly, unfortunately, had a boyfriend at the time. 

After their freshman year, Josh transferred to Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, where both had dreamed of studying. Kelly eventually followed suit and joined him there, claiming that his stories were making her too jealous and that she couldn’t stand it anymore.

Both now in San Diego, they began to fall in love with the city, and with each other. To Josh’s surprise, Kelly and her boyfriend broke up, and the rest is history. 

Their first date was Valentine’s Day and within six months, they were an item. Three and a half years later, he asked her to become his wife and she gladly said yes. 

How They Asked:

Kelly was under the impression that she was planning his 24th birthday weekend celebration but Josh had something else in mind. She had arranged for them to head to Petco Park and see the Giants vs. the Padres and meet up later on with all their friends for birthday shenanigans at a bar. They spent the day at Point Loma, relaxing, catching some rays, and enjoying the sites. They checked into a hotel and Kelly began to get ready for the evening. 

She took notice of Josh and how he was behaving sort of funny. She couldn’t put her finger on it but he was being really weird, suggesting to get the car while she finished doing her hair. She realized it was getting late and agreed, not really thinking too much of it. She went downstairs the moment she was ready and was frustrated to find him nowhere in sight. There was a huge limo parked right in front of the hotel’s entrance, which she stomped around to try and find Josh, without success. 

Suddenly, her brother stepped out of the limo, followed by her mom and dad. Kelly was confused… where did they just come from? How did they know she was there? And all of a sudden, it clicked. They handed her a note from Josh. It was happening.

Kelly’s mom and best friend brought her a dress to change into. Her BFF gave her another note. Both notes were filled with kind words from Josh, explaining how excited he was to spend the rest of his life with her. He described, in detail, so many different moments throughout their relationship during which he saw flashes of them growing old together. 

They stopped at the restaurant they went to for their first date and picked up Kelly’s other best bud who handed her another note. They went to pick up Josh’s parents outside of Petco Park, packed them into the limo, had a drink, and headed to the ferry landing on Coronado Island, where the two ended their first date.

Once they parked, she hugged her parents and ran to the pier where Josh was waiting. He grabbed her hand, gave it a squeeze, and asked if she would join him on a walk. When they found a private place without many passersby, he expressed his deep love for her and got down on one knee. Kelly said yes before he even got a chance to open his mouth. He laughed, and asked her what she had always wanted to hear come out of his mouth: “Will you marry me?”. It was the best day of her life.

Bottom Line…
