i can love you with my eyes closed

How they Met
We met in the early summer of 2013 through a few mutual friends. Coincidentally, we ended up going to the same college. After months of talking and getting to know each other, we finally decided to be in a committed relationship on August 29th, 2013 and by God’s will when we found the perfect venue to get married there was only one Saturday available, which was August 29th, 2020, which is when we will be getting married.
"I honestly felt that the proposal was coming, I just did not know when. He was supposed to propose during a concert that we both planned on attending as he told me, but the concert was cancelled so that did not go as planned. On September 22, 2018 we went to our favorite Italian restaurant, and I noticed that he was talking to the waitress back and forth, so I began to question it and he claimed that was an old classmate that he knew. Later on, that night he got on one knee and I said “YES” as the waitresses captured the moment. When Blidgie said yes during the proposal, I was relieved, because I could finally say I am going to spend the rest of my life with the love of my life."
The wedding planning
The wedding planning so far has been a roller coaster, sometimes I feel like everything is coming together, and then fall apart being that I am very detail oriented and have a brain full of ideas. I also feel like I worry about the small things in the wedding, but I have to remind myself that as perfect as I want the day to be there are things that are not going to go exactly as planned, and I have to be okay with that."
What you love most about each other
"What I love most about Donnell is how patient he is with everything in life and our relationship, which I feel like is a phenomenal characteristic to have. Also, how he loves the whole me flaws and all, whether I am having a good or bad day he always know the right thing to say to keep my spirit up and keep me motivated.
What I love most about Blidgie is how optimistic and spiritual she is. Blidgie personality was everything I needed to become a better person, so with that being said, Blidgie helped me become a better man. She taught me the value of love and how to always “look on the bright side” of every aspect of life. "
