How We Met
We met through mutual friends in high school. He was the starting quarterback for his school and I was a cheerleader for mine. Our connection was instant and we quickly became best friends. He even skipped his senior prom to come to my birthday party! May 21, 2011, he asked me to be his girlfriend, and we’ve been creating memories ever since! Turns out we knew a lot of the same people and we even went to the same daycare and summer camp as kids. I don’t know how we didn’t meet sooner, but we thank god for crossing our paths when he did.
How They Asked
On our first trip to Europe, we arrived in the most romantic town of Italy’s Amalfi Coast, Positano. We hiked 2,800 feet up a mountain on the “Path of The Gods” to the top of Amalfi. We joked about getting stranded if it were to start storming because it was literally only us on the trail and the fog was starting to roll in. After an hour up we came across an area of several stacked rocks, known as a cairn, to show hikers they are headed on the right path.
A few steps forward were the most magical view of the Mediterranean Sea and all of Positano. “Take pictures of those rocks, they’re so cool… like a bunch of pictures,” he said to me. I snapped some pics only to turn around to him down on one knee. The greatest view and the greatest moment of my life. 8 years together and I said yes!
Turns out Romeo & Juliet got married on March 11th ❤️
