Kaitlyn and Tristan

Marriage Proposal Ideas in Central Park

How We Met

Tristan and I meant through a mutual friend during our junior year of high school, but it was not until our senior year in 2014 that we eventually started talking through our mutual interest in the Chicago Blackhawks. We started officially dating on March 10, 2014, and have had many adventures together including doing the Disney College Program together in 2017.

How They Asked

My boyfriend (at the time) and I were planning to move to Florida. He was moving down there in May for a Disney College program internship and I was not going to be able to join him till December because of school. We had friends coming into town on the morning of Sunday, March 15 and we were going to take them to downtown Chicago to do some touristy things. unfortunately, all of the tours got canceled and our friends decided to stay home so we were pretty bummed and decided on just spending that Saturday before they were supposed to come in, just to spend the day together. After going to lunch, we drove to the park and I made a comment that he was going to miss the local farmers market that started at the end of May and that it would not be as fun because I would not be able to drag him there. We got out to play Pokemon Go, after playing for a minute, I was starting to get cold and complained that I was ready to go. But he kept walking and dragging me along (ironic much?) and when we got to the sidewalk, that is when he got down on one knee and ask him to marry him. It was such a magical moment because no one was around and it started to snow. Of course, I said yes and cried for hours.
