How We Met

Sergey and I met last summer on a road trip to California, we had many mutual friends but we never got around to meeting one another till the Roadtrip. I was very good friends with Sergey’s cousin at the time, and he had invited my friend and I to take a trip down to California for the weekend with them. After just the first few hours in the car, tear filled laughter, nonestop talking; I began falling for Sergey. Ever since that trip, my feelings for him increase by the day.

how they asked

I couldn’t have asked for a better proposal, everything about it was perfect! My fiancé and I love the outdoors. For the proposal location, Sergey picked wahclella falls; which is my absolute favorite location in all of Oregon. I used to tell him that if I were able to build a home and spend the rest of my life there, I would. Sergey planned the hiking trip a few months in advanced with a few of our friends who never been there. When the day came, I didn’t expect anything strange or different. It just seemed like an ordinary Saturday.

As we got there and hiked to the waterfall, I ran up to sit up on top of the highest rock (which has the best view of the waterfall) as Sergey came up and joined me, we were discussing how gorgeous the fall was which turned into a little argument of who loves who more and at that moment he dropped on one knee and asked me to marry him! I was speechless as I wrapped my arms around him and squealed with joy! It was a definite yes, no questions asked! It still doesn’t seem real that I am marrying my best friend, the love of my life!
