Meet Irene and Travis, high school sweethearts and homecoming king and queen at Palos Verdes High School in 2002. Travis was on the basketball team and Irene was a cheerleader and “thanks to AOL instant messenger along with nosey and helpful friends,” these two found out they liked each other and started dating on February 4, 2003.
Here is the proposal story from our couple:
“On July 1st, Travis surprised Irene after she worked a busy 12-hour shift as a Neonatal Intensive Care nurse. It’s a typical night for us to make and eat dinner together and watch Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune (yes, big nerds). Irene comes into the house and all of the lights are off. She says out loud, “O.M.G.” and sees beautiful red rose petals leading to the dining table where there are candles that spell out “MARRY ME?” and there is Travis, down on one knee. After she says yes, Travis said, “Let’s celebrate with champagne!” He tries to open the bottle but has some trouble. He points the champagne bottle towards Irene’s face and says, “oh no, look, only half of the cork came off” and then…BOOM! The other half of the cork shoots straight in Irene’s face! Smooth….”
This couple is just as fun as their engagement portrays. We hope you enjoy their engagement photos and we can’t wait to have more amazing moments with these two when they get married. They will become man and wife on the same date that they became girlfriend and boyfriend 13 years ago!
