Emma and Jacob

How We Met

I was working at the local supermarket. One day, my friend that worked in the liquor department walked up with a guy I hadn’t seen before. He introduced him as Jacob, the new liquor department employee. Jacob shook my hand and said it was nice to meet me. I was so taken aback by how polite he was and his beautiful blue eyes and gorgeous smile. And that was it. Love at first sight. I didn’t think it was real until it happened to me.

how they asked

I had never been to the snow before and one day over a card game Jacob, myself, his sister Mel and best friend Harrison decided to go up to Falls Creek for a weekend. The day finally arrived and after spending a few hours trying to teach me to ski we had some lunch and then Jacob suggested we all go on a walk to explore. We climbed a large hill and the view up the top was stunning. I was in awe of seeing the snow capped trees and the ski slopes, things I had only seen in photos before. Jacob said we should get a photo and he stood behind me to pose as Harrison was taking the picture, he started acting strange. I turned to see what he was doing and there he was on one knee, with the most perfect ring.


When he asked me to marry him I practically jumped on him to kiss him as I said yes.


We then sat in the snow, crying happy tears, as he put the ring on my finger. It was the happiest moment of my life.
