How We Met
Chase and I met in High School at East Wake High School in Wendell, North Carolina. It was my Sophomore year and his Senior year when we had a class together and he joined the Swim Team that I was already a member of. The rest is history!
how they asked
My parents texted my siblings and I in a group message and told us that they wanted us to go out to dinner as a family to celebrate the upcoming school year. My mom mentioned that it was a “fine dining” dinner and to dress nicely. I didn’t think much of it and we met for a nice dinner. Afterward, she invited us back to our home for desserts that she had made/bought. When we got back to our house, my dad mentioned how he had cut the grass and that it looked really good and he asked us to go see (he couldn’t think of a better way to get us to go see the backyard). When I opened the door, I was SO surprised to see Chase standing at the end of a long walkway of rose petals and lit candles, under an arch lined with lights, and a bouquet of roses. When I met him at the end of the walkway, Chase reminded me that today was exactly 5 and a half years since we first started dating, which made it even more special to us. After all was said, I asked Chase “Did I even say yes?!” and he told me that I did. We finished the night eating desserts and sipping prosecco surrounded by family. Truly, the best night ever!
