How We Met
Foster and I first met back in the summer of 2015 at a college gathering where we had both been working. We met in passing and weren’t initially attracted to each other. HOWEVER, we reconnected later and it’s been absolutely amazing ever since!
How They Asked
Foster & I love the Disney movie “Up” and just absolutely adore the couple from the movie (Carl & Ellie). We also just feel like we relate to the love they share and love making our lives together with a true adventure. Therefore, “Up” kind of just naturally became our relationship’s theme. We had already had a day filled with “Up” themed activities such as making the “Carl & Ellie” mailbox for our “soon-to-be” house and a picnic-like the ones in the movie.
However, the next place we went to was a private venue (on the marsh of Saint Simons Island) that was totally & completely decorating like a popular scene right out of the movie. As we walked up, the “Up” theme song started playing as if we had walked straight into the movie. After taking everything in and chatting about all of the detail that was in the setup, Foster told me I was his greatest adventure, got down on one knee, and I said the easiest “yes” I’ve ever said in my whole entire life. As if this wasn’t already enough, in came both of our families and our two dogs to come to celebrate this special moment. It was truly a dream come true.
