How We Met

Tyler and I met almost 8 years ago an undergrad at SUNY Plattsburgh. I played volleyball in college and he would watch my games live and send me flowers once a week before we were even together. He moved back home and after talking on the phone every night for a month straight, I decided to make the trip to visit him. Little did I know that would be the start out of the beautiful relationship. We dealt with long-distance for a year, taking trains and making long car rides back and forth to see each other. We decided to end the distance and moved into our first apartment together. Fast forward 6 years and we have two Goldendoodle puppies, a cat, a house, and now a ring!! I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life together!

How They Asked

My roommate from college and best friend, Jessie, is originally from Vermont but moved to Texas after graduating. I have made many trips out to visit her and have fallen in love with Texas. I finally had the opportunity to travel here with my now fiancé this month.

I was so excited to show him everything I have loved during my previous visits. I didn’t think in a million years he would propose in Texas because he had never been! Jessie suggested we check out a cool outdoor patio in Austin and again, thinking nothing more than another adventure – we went.

 

We walked into this magical, secluded garden and as I was admiring all the quirky structures around the property, Tyler grabbed my hand and led me into the most magical greenhouse and I knew at that moment what was about to happen. I had waited so long for this and dreamt of this moment for so long. I started crying immediately. He got down on one knee and it was the easiest yes of my life!!
