How We Met

Tyler and I went to the same college but didn’t meet until after we both graduated! We had our first date at Lewis University where we attended and it was practically love at first sight!

How They Asked

Tyler planned it out perfectly- he brought me to Lewis again under the guise of taking “fall pictures.” We went to the exactly location of one of our dates on top of a hill. As I approached I saw a bale of hay jutting out around the corner of a sports equipment trailer. He reassured me this must be for the college’s sports team’s for pictures. When I rounded the corner to face the bale I was so surprised to see that there were four pumpkins sitting on them monogrammed with the words Will You Marry Me? I instantly started crying as he got down on one knee. He told me he knew he loved me from the minute he saw me pull up on our first date. He told me he can’t imagine life without me and would be honored if I would be his wife. I said yes!
