How we met: Adrian grabbed my hand and pulled me close to him on the dance floor at a Reggae night in San Francisco 5 years ago. After we escaped the hot dance room we got to talking outdoors and came to find out we both lived in the same tiny town about an hour’s drive away. What a small world. After many sweet phone calls and a couple of dates, we decided to keep it exclusive!
The Proposal: Adrian tricked me. In his culture (Ugandan) when a proposal is about to happen, the groom brings his family and the bride’s family together for a meal.The groom then proposes to the bride. Despite knowing this custom, Adrian convinced me that a special dinner he’d organized for both our families was just “a chance to get together.” I was shocked when he pulled out a ring at the end of our meal. I cried and accepted in front of the people who mean most to me.
