Kaitlyn and Mason

How We Met

Mason and I met on June 12, 2016, in a college town bar after two friends (Natalie and Alex) VERY awkwardly forced us to dance 😳. After leaving each other Natalie and Alex asked me if I got his number or gave him mine which I replied “nah! I guess that ship sailed already” but they weren’t letting it go that easily.

They both plotted and ended up texting Mason from my phone planning a group date where we all went to PPG Paints and watched the Pittsburgh Penguins win the 2016 Stanley Cup! I knew after that night I was going to do everything I could to keep Mason around, luckily it worked!

How They Asked

Mason’s family has a condo in West Palm Beach, Florida so it’s hard to argue that it has become our favorite travel spot! We wanted to plan a trip for December and had asked a few of our friends to join, but it ended up just being the two of us that could take the time off. I had wondered if it could happen on the trip but didn’t want to think about it too much. It was the morning of December 6th, the day after we landed in Florida, and I told myself this is just another vacation and I didn’t need to overthink anything.

Fast forward to two hours later, Mason wouldn’t stop asking me to take a picture (honestly, that should’ve given it away right there 😂) but for some reason, I didn’t want any pictures. Finally, Mason talked me into taking a walk down the beach and the next thing I know he’s on one knee!

We celebrated on the beach all weekend and I couldn’t have asked for a better moment!
