Free-Spirited Idaho Engagement
January 3, 2021
Mary + Noah
Noah and I met at work September of 2019. He ran productions, like the new student orientation, while I worked the audio side setting up mics and speakers. He says that he had a crush on me from the first time he saw me, but I couldn’t even remember his name. We crossed paths a few more times that fall semester, but nothing really happened. January of 2020 I had decided to take a break from dating, but concluded that if anyone made a move, I could entertain the idea of a first date. Our very first shifts back from Christmas break happened to be the new student orientation and Noah asked for my number backstage. We went on our first date that Saturday night and it was honestly the best first date ever. He took me to get hot chocolate, where we talked for close to 3 hours. Earlier in the day my sister had told me a pick up line to use, so I told it him as a joke. After we agreed that we had spent enough time at the cocoa place, we were headed back to his car and as we went to cross the street he grabbed my hand while flirtatiously saying “Did you parents ever teach you to hold hands while crossing the street?” As we drove back to my apartment we decided that we didn’t want the date to end so we went to go see a late movie. While walking me back to my apartment, he turned to me with a smile and said “Can we take a picture together? I want to prove to my friends that angels really do exist.” He had remembered the pickup line! So we took that picture which now hangs on our wall. After that we were practically inseparable, and through we didn’t have much free time, we spent every moment we could together. When the pandemic hit, we had a lot more time to spend with each other, so we ended up getting engaged 3 months after our first date, and got married 3 months later. Even though we got married in the middle of a global pandemic, our day was perfect.
