How We Met

We met in college and we were best friends for about a year and a half before we started to like each other. I had always wanted to be in a relationship with my best friend. We went through a lot together as friends so when we started to like each other things just fell into place. Some people think breaking through “the friend zone” is hard but it was very easy for us. When we started dating our friendship did not end it just became stronger. Never in my life have I been more respected by a man in my life. He truly cares about me, loves me and knows how to make me feel better when I am down. He encourages me, stretches me and challenges me to be a better person.

how they asked

The story of the best birthday ever // Zach told me that we were going to Niagra Falls for the day to celebrate my birthday! We had plans to just be tourists for the day because I had never been to Niagra before. I was so excited just to spend time with him exploring all of the attractions that I wasn’t expecting anything else. The first thing we did was go on the Sky Wheel that over looks the falls and I love taking pictures of beautiful things so I was very ready to snap some cool pictures for instagram later. While I was focused on the beautiful view from the top of the Sky Wheel I didn’t realize that Zach had taken the ring out of his bag and gotten down on one knee in the cabin. I felt a tap on my shoulder and I turned around to see Zach on his knee and I started crying (obviously) and he started to tear up as he asked “Emily will you marry me?”
