how we met
Karen and Tyler met on a little app called, “Tinder.” Both Karen and Tyler were living in Canton, Maryland at the time. They were new to using the app, and had actually never went out on a physical date with anyone before meeting each other. Karen and Tyler had attended Penn State and graduated the same year. They would later find they had some mutual acquaintances and perhaps a few chances to meet, but it was Tinder that inevitably brought them together. The pair coordinated a date at Saute, now Lee’s Pint & Shell, where their love story began. It all started with a swipe, followed by hours of conversation, and a beautiful relationship.
how they asked
It was a blustery day in February. Tyler took Karen out to lunch at one of their favorite spots, The Brewer’s Art. Despite being one of the coldest months in the city, Tyler convinced Karen to take a walk down to Washington Monument. It was very chilly, so Karen was tempted to turn back several times. Tyler kept her close and pushed her on toward the courtyard. At the moment, she couldn’t understand his want to stay in the cold, but then he kissed her. As he pulled away, he fell back onto his knee and asked Karen to marry him. Cars drove by, beeping to congratulate them, intensifying their happy moment. As she said yes, there was even a friend on stand by to capture their proposal!
