How We Met

Grant and I started dating when we were 18, at Augustana College. (I Facebook messaged him first, and that’s the go-getter in me.) Six years later, we are ENGAGED!!! He was the hunky football star, and I was the competitive lacrosse center/cheerleader (I only tried out for cheerleading so that we could be THAT couple for a year.) It was magic. He has introduced me to all the flavors of worldly cuisines and stood beside me at endless music concerts. The growth in our relationship has been the most beautiful journey. September 25, 2021 can’t come soon enough!

How They Asked

Grant picked me up in a dashing suit and took me to Aba, my favorite restaurant. We sat in one of those glass greenhouses, surrounded by candles, music, and electric energy. The ambiance was perfection. After a dinner with every bite starting with “oh wow this is delicious”, he took my hand and told me how much I meant to him, that the world wouldn’t be complete without me by his side. He then got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. I said YES! While also laughing due to excitement that after 6 years the moment I had been dreaming about was happening. His two siblings surprised me by popping up to take photos of the moment. Afterwards we went to celebrate with both our families, remembering our past and how we got to this moment, embracing the present and toasting to our future.
