How We Met
Ben and I actually went to the same (huge) high school. We knew of each other but never spent time together. He was a football player and I was in the band. Fast forward five years, we reconnected through friends while I was in town for the holidays and we’ve been inseparable since.
How They Asked
Ben told me a month out about his desire to go to The Biltmore. I had a feeling something big would happen. We arrived at the Biltmore and I remember texting my friends saying “I don’t see a ring box in his pocket!” with crying emojis. During the tour, Ben started getting really nervous and rushed. We were not close to the end of the tour but he really wanted to see the sunset. We walked around the corner, he stopped to hug me, and his heart was racing. I don’t remember much else but saying yes! Afterward, he surprised me with all our family and friends at a local Italian restaurant. It was perfect.
