How We Met
I met Jacob when I was just 15. He was persistent in asking me to be his girlfriend, even when I ignored him! On February 13th, 2013, I finally said yes and the rest is history! Crazy thing is, we have pictures of us as kids with Jacob looking right at me, but we had no clue until finding them as we were making poster boards for his graduation party!
How They Asked
Jacob’s mom invited me on her annual girls’ wine trip along with their family friend and his aunts. We stayed in Traverse City, Michigan, and on our second day up there I got the surprise of my life! The day started with the wine tour bus picking us up. We then drove to the gorgeous Brys Estate winery.
What I didn’t know was that Jacob had driven up that morning with my parents and he was hiding inside the winery waiting for my arrival with a secret photographer. After taking in the views, his mom asked a lady there to take a group picture of us girls.
After the picture, she nudged me and said “look”. Just then, I saw the love of my life walking down the stairs and he proposed on the overlook of the packed winery. Everyone cheered and it was truly the best day ever!
