Dan and Seila (pronounced Shay-La) met through some mutual friends, for him it was love at first sight, for her it took some time. Seila served her LDS mission with one of Dan’s friends. When they returned home after 18 months, the friend decided to set Dan and Seila up on a blind date. They enjoyed each others’ company, but she wasn’t quite ready to jump into a relationship, she turned him down twice when he asked her to go steady. After getting to know Dan a little better, she couldn’t resist his kind nature and unmatched wit.
The proposal was amazing, and it went off without a hitch! Dan, along with lots of help from some amazing friends, on his birthday, popped the question. His group of friends were holding a “surprise” birthday party for him at the Park, she was his transportation to the park where his friends were waiting. Little did she know, when he ran across the park for a “bathroom break” he was running ahead of her to the already decorated pavilion where the proposal would all go down.
Family and friends waited eagerly nearby for a celebration after the big question, and hopeful YES answer. The day was beautiful, the timing was just right, and with everyone pulling together it was a pretty cool proposal. Take a look at their video!
