Our Fairy Tale Story

We're engaged!!! Let's see...we met back in May at auditions for Beauty & the Beast! I really hoped that we would be leads together so that we could get to know each other better! Turns out, we got the parts of Belle & Prince/Gaston, and decided that we really liked each other as soon as rehearsals really started. One night, on the way home, he asked, "Hey, have you seen Adam's play yet?" and I said, "No, do you wanna go?", and so we still debate on who asked who out first. We went to this play, ate peach cobbler, and played card games all night and decided that we could be friends and "why have we not hung out before?!" We've pretty much been inseparable since! Glory, we're so perfect for each other in so many ways. Its incredible how easy and how right the whole thing has been. We can't wait to spend our whole lives together! So here's the proposal story: So opening night, Jason played the Prince, and the ending scene is a big number with the whole cast on stage. We're supposed to kiss at the end, but Jason wasn't leaning in to kiss me, and then the lights didn't black out like they're supposed to, and I look over, and little Zach who plays Chip was walking in carrying the ring on a pillow, and Jason takes it, gets down on one knee, and says, "Camille, will you marry me?"! And I said yes, and kissed him and then took off my gloves and put on my most incredible diamond ring! And the crowd was cheering and taking pictures--half the audience was just our friends and family who all knew this was coming!! Glory, it was all so perfect and priceless! I wouldn't trade my story for anything!

I don't know if you remember me, I was in your ward freshman year (Carroll Hall). But I just wanted to say that your story is the absolute cutest story I have ever heard. Congratulations! You guys look so happy!

It really was the most exciting play I've ever been to. The whole night I had a nervous feeling for Jason and just wanted the show to be over so he could propose. Congratulations! Being married is wonderful! At least the first two months are ;)
