A military uniform was the point of attraction | Read Courtlynn & William’s love story

 Aww, we bet Williams and Courtlynn’s story will make you smile!
Love story:
“It was a cool, October day on the campus of the University of Kentucky. I was wearing my military uniform which was customary for Wednesdays. I highlight this as it will become important as the story progresses,” William told Munalachi Bridal magazine.
He was waiting for the bus that would take him to Commonwealth Stadium where his car was parked. As he was waiting he saw a familiar face, it was Courtlynn, the girl he worked with at the time and secretly had a crush on.
“We began to talk and catch up with each other about work and classes. My bus had arrived, so I offered to give her a ride back home. She accepted and we would continue to talk” William says.
Prompted by William’s military uniform, Courtlynn shared that she had dated someone in the military before and would never go down that path again (never say never right?).
“While she was talking, all I could think about was proving her wrong. I knew that if I was ever afforded the opportunity, I would make her change mind. I knew it wasn’t the uniform, but rather the fact that she had yet to find the right man. In my heart, I knew I was the right man,” William declares. “Long story short, I was afforded that opportunity, and 3 years later we are happy and set to be wed. I suppose I was the right man, who just happened to wear a uniform,” he says.

William proposed to me on December 18, 2015 at my University Of Kentucky graduation. I had just finished singing the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority hymn with my sisters for the last time and was already in a heap of tears. My sisters and I all hugged and as I turned around to meet my family I see everyone standing around with their phones out. With an extremely confused look on my face I feel someone grab my hand and turn me around. It was William. He stood there so handsome in his uniform and began talking about our experiences and the love we share. If I wasn’t crying hard already…the tears really started pouring down then. Then with hundreds of our friends, family, and University of Kentucky peers standing around us, he got down on one knee and said the most magical words I have ever heard. “Courtlynn Janan Lindsay… Will you marry me?” I screamed yes in excitement and gave him the biggest hug and kiss. It was the most amazing proposal ever and I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with my love William.
