How We Met

We met when we both attended Penn State. My roommates went to Lukes highschool and connected us.

How They Asked

For the past month, I had been planning a surprise weekend for Luke’s 30th birthday at his family’s lake house with all of our friends. At some point along the way he found out about the surprise party and turned it into a surprise engagement!

We got to the lake house early Friday to decorate for Luke’s birthday and “surprised” him when he got there Friday night. Saturday evening we went on a sunset boat ride to take pictures until Luke “wasn’t feeling well” and we had to rush back. As soon as we hit the dock Luke raced up to the house which I assumed was because he was sick. I took my time and walked up the hill to the house, and as I was almost at the top our song Beautiful Crazy by Luke Combs started playing on the outdoor speakers. I thought to myself “what a coincidence, I can’t wait to tell Luke”. Then I got to the top of the hill and saw Luke standing at the end of a walkway lined with candles and lanterns and blue rose petals (my favorite color). At that point I realized what was happening and was in complete shock. After the proposal, Luke told me there was another surprise.. I turned around and there was my entire family (who live in Pittsburgh about 5 hours away from where we were) and my best friends that Luke had flown out to surprise me! We went inside to find the basement decorated and set up for our engagement party and spent the rest of the night celebrating with all of our favorite people! ❤️

I still can’t believe the thought and time and planning that went into it and how many people went out of their way for us. It was seriously the most amazing day/night, I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect engagement. I may even say it was worth the 8 year wait 😏
