About Us

Proposal

John knew that Thursday June 22 was the day but Yesenia had no idea. John came back on that day from a business trip. Before he left, he went to the Indigo Hotel rooftop bar in downtown El Paso, Texas named Circa 1963 to check out the potential site. It was perfect! Before he left, he told Yesenia to not make any plans that night because they were going out since he had been gone about a week and a half.

After having drinks and dinner at the bar, they went out near the pool and got a small table under the stars of El Paso. John had gone through dozens and dozens of potential songs for the special moment in the weeks leading up to that night. He decided that Brad Paisley’s song “Then” was going to be the special song. Here are the lyrics:

[Verse 1]

I remember trying not to stare

The night that I first met you

You had me mesmerized

And three weeks later

In the front porch light

Taking 45 minutes to kiss goodnight

I hadn't told you yet

I thought I loved you then

[Chorus]

Now you're my whole life

Now you're my whole world

I just can't believe

The way I feel about you girl

Like a river meets the sea

Stronger than it’s ever been

We've come so far since that day

And I thought I loved you then

[Verse 2]

I remember taking you back

To right where I first met you

You were so surprised

There were people around

But I didn't care

I got down on one knee right there

And once again

I thought I loved you then

[Verse 3]

I can just see you

With a baby on the way

I can just see you

When your hair is turning grey

What I can't see

Is how I'm ever going to love you more

But I've said that before

[Chorus]

Now you're my whole life

Now you're my whole world

I just can't believe

The way I feel about you girl

We'll look back someday

At this moment that we're in

And I'll look at you and say

And I thought I loved you then

[Outro]

And I thought I loved you then

John played the song for Yesenia on his phone while he recapped their relationship and told her how much he loved her. In the second verse, when Brad Paisley sang about getting down on one knee, John pulled out the ring, got down on one knee and popped the question to her. Will You Marry Me Baby??? She was in shock and did not realize what was happening. After a few long moments, Yesenia said YES!!!

So on a warm June evening, in El Paso, under a clear and star filled sky, Yesenia and John’s relationship went to a new level. A level that they are both so happy to be on! Now it was time to plan the special day…

About Us

Our Story

Thank goodness for online dating! We know… it gets a bad wrap sometimes but we are living proof that it can and does work. Millions of relationships every year are created and next year there is going to be at least one more couple married that met online.

It was early October 2014 when John first saw Yesenia’s on-line profile. He immediately liked what she had to say and decided to private message her. A week went by and he did not hear from her. He figured some other “dude” must have taken her off the market or she decided to give up looking for Mr. Right.

When John went to work on Columbus Day in 2014, October 13, 2014, little did he know he was going to get a message from Yesenia. She actually had been very sick the week that John was waiting for her to respond to him. She checked her account and saw John’s interest. The morning of October 13th is when their story started.

Yesenia called John and ended up leaving a message for him on his voicemail. Yesenia was at the doctor that morning and they ended up texting each other most of that morning. It was a good thing that John was assigned to patrol the desert at work that day because he had plenty of time to text back and forth with her. They are not sure how many texts were sent that morning but it was many!

They were both thrilled at the way the text conversation went and talked that night. They talked for an hour or two each night until their first date. The conversation was awesome and it seemed like the stars were aligning. Yesenia even made a comment at one point that she hoped they would not run out of things to talk about when they met in person because it seemed like they talked about everything over the phone. John assured her that he did not thing that would happen.

Then the day came… Their first date! It was the Thursday after their first text message to each other. They met for drinks and dinner at Pelican’s Steak and Seafood in El Paso, Texas. The chemistry that was present at Pelican’s between them was intense. When that night came to an end, neither one of them wanted to leave. The first date was a success!

Their next date was three days later on Sunday when they met for dinner and a movie at Fort Bliss in El Paso. Then it happened by the outdoor fireplace… The first kiss and it was magical… That night they both knew that they had something special. Now, fast forward three years and they are planning the wedding.

October of 2014 will be a month that they will never forget.
