How We Met
Alex and I were neighbors during my junior year and his senior year of college. I actually knew two of his roommates but had no idea that they were going to be my neighbors until the day they moved in. It wasn’t love at first sight for either of us, but the more we spent time together and got to know each other, the closer we got. We were friends for a while before he finally gave in and asked me out!
How They Asked
We went to Colorado with my family in January. I’ve been going there to ski since I was five, and I’ve always wanted to get married in the little chapel there for as long as I can remember. Alex kept taking me over there alone to mess with me since I had a feeling he was going to propose at some point. Finally, on one of our walks, he stopped on the bridge in front of the chapel and got on one knee.
I don’t remember what he said but I know I said yes! We spent some time taking photos and then had dinner with my family in the cabin on the mountain where we plan to have our reception. It was the best day of one of my favorite places!
