How We Met

Sam’s sister-in-law reached out to me last year after I posted something about being single on Instagram. Her response was “my bother-in-law is single”…

She sent me a few photos of him, told me a little bit about him, and then a few days later Sam and I were meeting for a late dinner and live music at a restaurant!

After that, we went on a date almost every day.

How They Asked

On our third date, Sam wanted to take me to a park where we could sit and talk. He brought his favorite blanket and some drinks but we ended up walking all around the Crystal Bridges Museum (a long walk to be carrying a blanket around) then ended up a park we didn’t intend to end up at… which is the park where he proposed!

Sam had been planning a picnic with our siblings for over a week and said that we would take some sibling photos as well.

So we started to pose for a photo of just us two (after setting up a cute picnic) and he got down on one knee! The spot he proposed is almost exactly the same spot where we had our third date!

I was so excited I almost forgot to actually say “yes”!
