Gudrun and Chris

How We Met

I’ve been working with his sister for 3 years, and she set us up! It was a match made in heaven!

how they asked

I’m originally from Iceland, but relocated to Virginia a few years ago, where I met Chris. Chris is a professional baseball player and spent his summer in California, so we’re long-distance 6 months out of the year. His parents, grandparents, and I planned a trip to go visit him in May. We chose to go to Disneyland on his day off, and I was beyond excited. Chris was ancy all day, and I thought it might have been because of the huge crowds and weather. Little did I know he was planning to propose that evening.


He chose to propose in front of the “It’s a Small World” ride. Rightfully so, considering we’re from different sides of the world. I’m so happy I found my happily ever after with Chris!
