How We Met
We both attended UCLA and had mutual friends. I ran into some friends at a football game, and Parker happened to be with them. He told our mutual friends he thought I was beautiful, and they were awesome wing-men! Parker finally asked me on a date, a hike at Los Liones. To put it simply, it was the best first date EVER and the rest is history.
How They Asked
We were up in Lake Tahoe with both of our families for the weekend. Parker took me on a sunset hike after kayaking with our siblings. Midway into our hike, a booming thunderstorm started, complete with lightning and heavy rain, but we were in it for the adventure. Once it started hailing, Parker couldn’t wait any longer and got down on one knee to ask me to spend the rest of our lives together. Of course, I said YES! I was absolutely blown away looking into his beautiful blue eyes, but OMG THAT RING💍🤩
Little did I know, my dad, a professional photographer, was waiting down by the lake to capture the moment. (Shoutout to Dad for hiding in the pouring rain with all his professional camera gear despite the spontaneous change of plans). We finished hiking down to meet him, even though we were SOAKED!My dad, Parker, and I shared some special, tear-filled moments on our hike back up. My dad gave us some great advice to spend some time, just the two of us. We watched the most spectacular sunset together! I love Parker so much, and I can’t wait to be his wife ❤️
