Love lit up between Wesley Hendrix, 22, and Alex Watts, 22, from the first moment they met. They’ve found their perfect match in each other. This is their love story.
How did you two meet? What were your first impressions of each other?
W: We met through her brother-in-law. He and I were in the same unit together. My first impression of her was that she was beautiful.
A: I got a message one day from Wesley and we just clicked. He seemed really fun and laid back.
W: Beautiful, fun, perfect
A: Funny, caring, cute
When did you realize you had met “the one,” that you wanted to spend the rest of your life with each other?
W: I realized that Alex was the one early on. She was different from anybody else that I’ve ever met. We fit perfectly together.
A: When we first met I said that I had met my future husband.
Can you each tell me about the proposal from your own perspective?
W: The plan was to go eat dinner, look at Christmas lights around town, and then head back to the house where I had my own lights… I made a sign out of Christmas lights that said “Marry Me”.
A: I was totally surprised! It was a normal night out, but when we got back to my house Wesley walked to the front door, instead of through the garage which I thought was odd. Then I saw the sign and him down on one knee.
What was your experience like shopping for the ring at Diamonds Direct? Tell us why you love the ring.
W: It was amazing. They helped me pick out the perfect ring. I love it because it is everything that she hoped that it would be.
A: I love the ring because he picked it out without any help from me! He knew the style that I liked and he did not disappoint!
Now that you’ve found “the one,” what advice would you give to someone else about love?
W: Be patient and understand that there will be disagreements, but don’t let that change how you feel about each other.
A: Understanding is the key to making thing work.
