Here is another wonderful love story of how Morgan and Ben were engaged! It is so much fun to share in the romance and joy of their special day. Enjoy!
“Ben and I met up in Logan while we were going to Utah State University. We were in the same LDS ward, due to the fact that we were in the same apartment complex. I was interested from the first time I saw him; however, I was too nervous to say anything. Finally, in April I got my chance to say something. On this one Sunday, my roommate and I were headed back from church, and in the parking lot to our apartment complex a car almost hit us. As I looked to see who it was, I was surprised to see that it was Ben and his roommate. We all waved it off and went on our way. Later that night at ward prayer I saw Ben and decided to go make fun of him a little bit for almost crashing into me. That night we talked until 5am and it has been a fairy tale ever since. Which leads me to our proposal story!
On August 18th, Ben and I went to a Real Salt Lake game with my parents. We had a blast and ate so much food that I was about to burst. After the game, Ben wanted to go to the Cheesecake Factory, and because of my stretched stomach I had to tell him that we could go, but I could not possibly eat another bite. So he decided that we would drive around Salt Lake for a while. This is the point in the story where Ben pretended to get lost in Salt Lake and wouldn’t listen to the directions I was trying to give him. If this didn’t make me mad, we then stopped at a Maverick in the scary part of Salt Lake, where Ben decided to leave me in the car so he could use the restroom. Little did I know he was stalling so my parents could finish setting things up for us. Now, after being frustrated to no end, I slept the rest of the way home. When we arrived at the house Ben woke me up and told me to come into the backyard because we had to talk (he did this in a voice where i was convinced he was going to break up with me). I followed him into the backyard, where he took out a flashlight and pointed me toward a card, the first card. Throughout my backyard there was a maze of string and cards that talked about how we met and little things about our relationship that he loves. I followed all the cards and the last card lead me into my living room and said, “Well by now you probably know what I’m about to say”, I turned around and Ben was on his knee. It was the perfect proposal!!
