We’ve all heard the stereotypes around women who love women and softball, but for Cheyanne & Yara it’s both the sport that made their lives cross paths and the inspiration behind their engagement shoot.

Nobody was keeping score as the love was free flowing!

DWH: So, you met playing softball?

C & Y: We met playing softball, shocking we know! We had both just moved back to San Diego and were looking for a team to join but first, we had to attend a softball clinic and we bonded over talking about how poorly it was run!

DWH: Asides from your shared love for softball (and one another), what else makes your relationship special?

C & Y: We are total opposites in every other way, it’s a surprise that our relationship even works but in the same sentence think it’s exactly why it does! We both bring something unique to the relationship and we never get bored.

DWH: And when did you both know; ‘she’s the one’?

C & Y: As cliché as it might be it was love at first sight for us both. By date number three we were already planning a wedding and our future together.

DWH: Tell us all the proposal details.

C: I totally failed at this one, sorry Yara! We had just bought our first house together and in my head, I’d planned out something super special. However, it started to rain and my plans were ruined. I basically told her that I wanted to marry her and gave her a cluster diamond ring. I didn’t get down on one knee, and it was nothing romantic!
