Caroline and Jordan
How We Met
The first time I met Caroline was at her cousin Kevin’s rehearsal dinner. Her uncle Mike had mentioned she and her mother were headed to my hometown of Savannah Georgia after the wedding and I gave her and her mom some advice on points of interest. I thought to myself at that moment she was definitely the prettiest girl at the dinner. I didn’t see her again until the next summer when Kevin invited me to visit New Jersey for the 4th of July. We shared my first NJ pizza slice on her parents back porch and later that night we got to really talk for the first time at Jack’s in Long Branch. We hit it off talking about our love of science, microbiology and beer brewing and we haven’t stopped sharing adventures together since!
how they asked
It was our 2 year dating anniversary and Jordan planned a surprise.. while he was acting a bit strange I didn’t know how big of a surprise! We pulled into the National Arboretum and started off our date by hiking up to the top of Mt. Hamilton. While on our way up we got to see eagles flying up above.
Once we made it to the top, we looked out at Washington D.C. While I was enjoying the beautiful view the moment got even more joyous as Jordan got down on his knee!! My heart was filled with happiness to know that I was saying yes to living a life-time with my best friend.
