Kaitlyn and Jacob


How We Met

Jacob and I met when we were in high school. We had quite a few mutual friends, and would often see each other at parties and other events. I had always had a big crush on him, but was too shy to tell him. We lost touch for awhile after we graduated, but reconnected one night while downtown with friends. We shared a pitcher of Guinness and we have been inseparable ever since.

how they asked

Since the day I met him, and for the past three years, Jacob has made me feel like nothing short of a princess. Every single day he goes above and beyond to treat me the way every girl dreams of. To no surprise, his proposal followed suit.

Somehow, I convinced Jacob to take me to my favorite place on Earth, Walt Disney World. The first few days of our trip were filled with laughs, lots of Mickey shaped food, and love. Sunday morning we woke up extra early because Jake surprised me with breakfast reservations at my absolute favorite Magic Kingdom spot, the Crystal Palace. He was acting a little anxious all morning. I asked him if everything was OK, he said it was, so I brushed it off as sleep deprivation. He made our reservation for before the park opened, so we were two of the few people in the park. Entering the park, walking down Main Street USA, and seeing the castle has always given me goosebumps. This day felt a little different, and even more magical. I was in my favorite place, with my favorite person.

He suggested we go up to the castle and get our picture taken by the Disney PhotoPass photographer right away. I should have known something was up right then, because Jake is not that into taking photos. We stood in front of the castle, and had a few photos taken. All of a sudden, he dropped to one knee and asked me to marry him. It was hands down the most perfect, beautiful, moment of my life thus far. After a few more photos, tears, and kisses we went to enjoy some bacon and Mickey-shaped waffles. I had to pinch myself a few times throughout the rest of the day because I truly couldn’t believe what had just happened. I will replay this moment in my head every day for the rest of my life. I am so in love, and truly have my happily ever after.
