Allie and William
How We Met
William and I met through my best friend from high school, who also happened to be good friends with William in college. We both grew up in the same small town but had gone to different schools growing up so we had never met or even heard of each other. I had come home from college one weekend for a break my senior year and Brooke introduced us one night.
How They Asked
We were on a trip to Banff, Canada with William’s parents for what I thought was just a family ski trip. On our second full day in Canada, I was told we were going to a nice dinner by Lake Louise. Upon arriving at Lake Louise, William suggested we go take a walk on the frozen lake, which I was a little hesitant about. After making it to the middle of the lake, I stood in awe in the beauty of the Canadian Rockies. William took this as the perfect moment to get down on one knee and ask “Will you marry me?” with the most beautiful ring. In complete shock, I replied “are you for real?” then screamed “yes!” Then I heard both of our families running towards us, which I had no clue that my parents were even in Canada! This was a trip of a lifetime.
