How We Met
Erika and Chris met in 2010 at St. Lawrence University. Erika was a Junior and Chris was a Senior. For a small school with mutual friends they did not really know each other. They were both were attending the Beta Theta Pi Formal, however did not come with each other. During the night, Chris kept asking Erika to dance, but Erika was playing hard to get. However, Chris finally got his way later in the night and they had instant chemistry. Their first date was at Mount Snow skiing and they have been inseparable ever since, from traveling Europe to skiing all the major resorts in the United States over the past 5 years. And what started their relationship also became the platform of their engagemet! Chris proposed on the top of Snowbird Resort in Utah!
how they asked
Chris and Erika spent the winter out in Salt Lake City, Utah. It was their last weekend in Utah and they decided to try Snowbird out for a change. At the top of the tram, Erika noticed a staff member taking pictures, so of course she dragged Chris along. They did a couple different shots and then the photographer wrapped up. It was then when Chris asked if he could do one more shot, and he got down on one knee! He told Erika that he called her dad and asked for permission, and then opened the box up and asked her if she would marry him. Erika started crying, and everyone on the top of the mountain started cheering and clapping! Of course Erika said yes!
