After watching Adrian’s heartwarming proposal (in the form of miming) to Brittany, we all were immediately enamored by the love these two share. As it should have, the video immediately went viral last week and was appropriately titled “best proposal of 2013”. This young couple made singles and couples everywhere desire that same kind of love. Because the video just wasn’t enough and we wanted to hear more of their story, we went out and got it, just for you. They are both just as wonderful as they seem in the video. BMWK is honored because Adrian (age 27) and Brittany (age 26) reserved their very first interview for us. If you thought their love looked amazing on video, it’s even more powerful once you hear their remarkable love story. They are absolutely adorable, and just a pleasure to speak with. I don’t doubt their story was designed by God.
BMWK: The BMWK family was so moved by your proposal we just had to learn more about your story. How long have you been together and how did you meet?
Brittany: We courted for 1 year and dated for 2 years. We have a unique story because we actually went to high school together. Adrian graduated in 2004 and I graduated in 2005. He was in the band and danced and I was class president. We were friends and never thought we would be together (as a couple). Even friends were surprised but then said a relationship between us made sense. After we both graduated, we met back up on MySpace in 2009. Adrian wrote me first, but he had an ex who also found me on MySpace and told me he was married and had all this other stuff going on, so I stepped back.
Adrian: Yeah, she was just crazy.
Brittany: But he reached out to me, because I wasn’t going to say anything else after that. Adrian was damaged and hurt and didn’t want another relationship. He had a couple of bad relationships. We maintained a friendship and learned each other.
BMWK: Adrian, how did you know Brittany was the one and that you could trust again?
Adrian: Brittany was the one who got through to my emotions. I was at the drive thru of McDonald’s and I prayed for what I needed in a woman. Brittany took my mind off of everything. It felt natural and right. Because I wanted to stay single as long as possible. I was trying to hold out. But the friendship was so strong. Everyone fell off, but she was the only one still there. I gave in to love. It’s funny because I wrote (back in senior year of high school) on a senior photo to her that we never know what the future holds. It was God.
Brittany: We both have strong foundations in God. I dated other guys who wanted just one thing and Adrian is the one guy who would never pressure me.
BMWK: Adrian, How did you come up with this idea (for the proposal)?
Adrian: I have mimed for 15-20 years (in church and as part of a group, Raar Mime). I wanted to be original. I originally thought about going full mime (suit and face paint) but it didn’t work out. When R. Kelly’s CD Chocolate Factory came out with this song, I knew I would use that song to propose. I didn’t think it would be all of this response.
Brittany: It was just from the heart.
Adrian: It was just from the heart. God gave me a gift and I had to share my gift.
