How We Met
Gary and I met at my cousin’s wedding in May of 2016. Our parents went to high school together, so I have known his parents for years, but that was the first time we truly got to meet!
How They Asked
Every year in October, Gary and I head to the Penn Vermont Fruit Farm to pick pumpkins. I grew up going there, so we’ve made it a tradition to return every year. We especially love it due to the tractor ride that leads you to the pumpkin patch! As we finished picking our pumpkins and heard the tractor coming back to get us, Gary took my hand. His were shaking, so that’s when I knew something was happening (and who I though was a normal farm go-er quickly turned into a photographer.. well played, Gary). I honestly blacked out and do not remember much of his sweet speech, but I did hear “I couldn’t do this without our friends and family”, so I turn to see the tractor filled with everyone closest to us, then look back to see Gary on one knee. We were able to celebrate with everyone, and it was so beautiful! It was my best day, until our next best day on 12/21/19!
