How We Met
Andrew and I met through the Music Department at the University of Nebraska Kearney- he studied Music Business and I studied K-12 Music Education. We had several classes together, for four years, before we finally connected. For our first date, we walked downtown and had a drink at a local brewery. We spent the next six hours talking about anything and everything, I knew there was a connection but I didn’t expect to find the love of my life.
how they asked
Andrew set up what I believed to be a Christmas card photo session, with a local photographer and close friend, Corbey Dorsey. On December 14 I took my last college final, and I headed back to our apartment to relax and change for pictures. We headed to Cottonwood Park to take photos. Corbey snapped a few photos, and I noticed that Andrew’s heart was pounding, but he claimed he was really cold. Corbey asked Andrew to grab an equipment bag out of his car. Andrew said he had a specific photo in mind, and he bent down, I thought he was tying his shoe.
He asked “Kate will you marry me”. I was in complete shock and didn’t initially reply. But then I quickly said yes. Corbey captured the proposal moment photo and recorded the entire set up, which we will be showing at our wedding.
