Maddi + Jason
Maddi and Jason first found each other back in 2012 when they were attending the same high school in Albuquerque, New Mexico. When Jason first met Maddi, he knew there was something special about her. High school Spanish class was where their love story began… and where Jason got a lot of help on his homework from Maddi! When Jason finally asked Maddi to be his girlfriend during his junior year, he knew they were in it for the long haul. He even told her two months into dating that he was going to marry her one day. The two continued to grow in their relationship as they entered college where they both attended the University of New Mexico. During that time Jason decided to serve in the Army while Maddi completed her nursing degree. After almost seven years of being together, Jason knew he could never see a life without Maddi in it.
Proposing to Maddi was no easy task for me as I had been agonizing over the perfect words to say to her and just exactly how I would do so. Once I got her father’s blessing, I took Maddi out to my Grandpa’s pasture in the south valley of Albuquerque where I had set up a candle-lit dinner for just the two of us out in the middle of the field. I was so nervous, I hardly ate any of my meal because all I could think about was how I was going to ask Maddi to be my forever. In the middle of dinner, I couldn’t take it any longer and finally pulled out the diamond ring that I picked out for Maddi and asked her to spend the rest of her life with me. It was one of the best days of my life, and certainly the best decision I’ve ever made!
