How We Met
Like most modern love stories—we swiped right! Unlike most modern love stories, we had three first dates! We went on an amazing first date in Pasadena in February of 2017. We met under the sign for Intelligentsia Coffee where we sat and talked for hours, before making our way across the street to King’s Row. Not wanting the night to end, we drove up to Mt. Wilson and took in a breathtaking view of twinkling stars and city lights. But Hunter never called me back after that date. Two months later, he texted me and wanted to try again. So went on another first date. This time, at a Mexican restaurant and a bowling alley. There would be no second date after that either. It would be a full year before we’d go on our third (and final) first date! He took me up to Mt. Wilson, just like he did that first night and underneath the twinkling stars, we both knew that this was a forever thing.
How They Asked
Hunter recreated our very first date! He took me to Intelligentsia Coffee, where he surprised me with my best friends from San Francisco! Then he took me to King’s Row. Lastly, he drove me up to Mt. Wilson, to the very spot where we finally fell in love. Waiting there for us, were his parents, sister, and my mom!
He got down on one knee and asked me to be his forever. At our engagement dinner, I found out that the photos he was taking of me at Intelligentsia and King’s Row were of the cups, where he had the barista and bartender write “will” and “you” to match the ring box which said, “marry me?”
