We met about 25 years ago, when I moved to Utah from France. I started the 2nd grade at Clinton Elementary and Chad was in my class. I would chase him around the playground calling him “caca-chi”. My family and I moved a couple months later to a different city but eventually moved back 6 years later when I was in the 8th grade. I started going to Sunset Jr High, Chad was going there as well and we had a few classes together and went right back to being friends (minus the “caca-chi” chasing).
By the time 9th grade came around we were a couple but of course we all know that “relationships” didn’t last long at that time and so he broke up with me (my first heart break). Of course I had to get back at him and went out with one of his best friends at the time just to make him jealous. Chad and I remained really good friends all the way through high school. After high school we parted ways for a few years until we found each other on myspace and renewed our friendship. Years into our renewed friendship and casual dating we finally made time for each other and have been together ever since.
In December 2012, Chad, our kids and I went to dinner at his mom’s house before going to the Zoolights at Hoggle Zoo. It was really windy that night, scary almost, but Chad was determined we were going to see the lights so we went. Once there we start walking around looking at the animals and enjoying the lights, we stopped by the monkeys (my favourite animal) and stayed for a minute admiring them.
I decide to turn to walk to another part when Chad grabs me and tells me that he loves me and gets down on one knee, I feel him tremble a bit as he reaches in his pocket and pulls out a small box, he again tells me how much he loves me opens the box and asked me to marry him.
“I get an ear to ear smile and I threw my arms around his neck and tell him that I love him followed by a simple yes.”
How awesome are Beesh & Chad? Thank you to them both and to Smyer Image for sharing their wedding day with Marry Me Ink today. Be sure to leave them some love!
