How We Met

Jake and I met about 4 and a half years ago at none other than a college house party and we have been inseparable ever since.

how they asked

We share a love of dogs, craft beers, and Minnesota Vikings football. For my birthday, he surprised me with two tickets to the Minnesota Vikings vs. Tampa Bay Bucs at the brand new US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis – that was just the first surprise.

It was a beautiful fall day in late September when the day finally arrived to go see the new stadium for our very first time. Right outside the front doors to the stadium is when Jake got down on ONE knee and asked me to spend forever with him, dressed in our Vikings gear and all.

He faked we were taking a picture together to commemorate our first time being there, but instead, my brother captured the proposal on video and in pictures. It was a dream come true and literally the best day ever, because, well also, our team WON. SKOL VIKINGS, SKOL LOVE.

After the game, the team figured out something cool happened at their stadium and we were surprised with two signed MN Vikings jerseys from Harrison Smith and Xavier Rhodes including a personalized letter from the team. Our team is now 8-2 and our wedding date is 9/28/2018 – two amazing things to happen this year, so far. The best is yet to come! SKOL THE KNOT LOVE STORIES :)
