Emily and Austin

Emily's Proposal in Pioneer Square, Portland, Oregon

How We Met

Austin and I are high school sweet hearts! We met the summer before our senior year and instantly fell for each other while mini golfing with a group of friends. That summer we were together almost every single day. Once summer ended and school started back up we went to different schools, so as soon as the bell rang we were headed to see each other.

We enjoyed meeting each other’s friends and supporting one another at sporting events. After high school graduation, we both headed off to Oregon State University where we spent the next four years falling even more in love. After graduation we started are new lives together in Boise, ID.

How They Asked

On December 22nd, 2019, Austin told me we were going to dinner in downtown Portland while we were back in Oregon visiting our families for the holidays. I didn’t think anything of it since Austin is often surprising me with nice dinners and fun getaways. Once in Portland, we went to see the beautiful Christmas tree at the Pioneer Square Plaza. That is when he got on his knees and told me he always knew he wanted to marry me. Of course, I said yes!! I can’t wait to marry my best friend!
