How We Met

Jacob and I met in 8th grade. We grew as friends all throughout high school and started dating shortly after our junior year! We were instantly over the moon for each other! He was the most thoughtful, kind, and genuine person I had ever met, and he quickly became my favorite person in the world to spend time with. We went from a football player and cheerleader to going to college together, and each step of the way was just a dream.

How They Asked

Jacob had come with my family to our favorite place in the world, Carmel, California, for two years. He knew that this was a place filled with joy for me, and he recognized just how special it was for me and my family. Jacob schemed and planned and kept everything a secret from me! On our third trip with my family to Carmel, California, he went above and beyond to make me feel special. On the pier at Pebble Beach, he set up a beautiful arbor, and without me knowing, he flew out each member of my immediate and extended family, and his as well.

The family has always been extremely important to us! He set up a live stream so that all of my best friends back home could see and experience the proposal with me! Once we walked up to the pier and I saw both of our families and the beautiful arbor, I was immediately overwhelmed! He said the sweetest words and asked me the best questions—would I marry him? OF COURSE! We got to spend the night with our families and FaceTiming our friends celebrating, and it will forever be one of my favorite days!
