Bridgette and Clayton


How We Met

Clayton and I met when we were 16 and 17 years old through mutual friends. We are now 24 and 25. I was a good girl and this skater boy with gauges was just not my type. After hanging all night, we were inseparable. We’ve been together ever since!


how they asked

Lately Clayton and I have been getting into hiking and exploring the state parks in Illinois which has beautiful waterfalls and awesome scenery. We decided to check out Matthiessen state park to go hiking and see what it has to offer. We found a waterfall that was to good not to have a picture in front of. There was a man near by and Clayton asked him to take a picture of us in front of a waterfall. We took a quick nice picture and then he turned to me, got on one knee and asked me to marry him and make him the happy man in the world!


After 8 years, of course I said yes! The man taking the pictures ended up taking a lots of photos and did a wonderful job! We got so lucky!
