How We Met
Kyle and I met when I was in college at a summer bonfire almost 4 summers ago and instantly connected. My roommate and I started throwing Monday night bonfires because she and her coworkers had Monday’s off so it worked out perfect. It was just another Monday evening during summer at the beach when a friend of a friend told us she had a friend who might stop by but wasn’t sure if he would come. Shortly after, Kyle walked up on the beach to our bonfire and I had all the heart eyes for him! Within one week Kyle asked me out on our first date to a country concert (we both are huge country music fans and have continued to go to as many concerts we can!) and it was a first date we both will never forget. We quickly became best friends and have been inseparable since!
how they asked
For Kyle’s 30th birthday we planned a trip to Nashville, Tennessee – we had been wanting to go for years so we were really looking forward to this trip! Kyles brother and sister-in-law came along for the trip and on the second night they told me they had a birthday surprise planned for Kyle. That night we exit our hotel and see a beautiful Cinderella style horse carriage waiting for us with champagne to take us around downtown Nashville.
We enjoy the carriage ride and decide to stop at a famous fountain to take pictures. Kyle wanted me to take a picture in front of the fountain starting with my back to him and then jump and turn around. I did just that but when I jumped around to face Kyle, he was down on one knee with the most beautiful ring and I realized it was all for me.
Kyle planned everything to the second he proposed and it was the most special moment ever. We spent the weekend celebrating, dancing and exploring beautiful Nashville which will now always have a place in our heart!
