How We Met

Our story starts about 12 years ago. We grew up in the same town, went to the same high school, and went to the same college. We were best friends through all the ups and downs of life. One day best friends turned into trying out a relationship. It was the best decision I have made in my life. We grew up together and I am so excited to now grow old together.

How They Asked

5 and a half years later, we decided to start the next chapter of our lives and move from CT down to Raleigh, NC. My brother and my now fiancé had planned weeks ahead of the most perfect proposal, surprising me at the most beautiful botanical garden. He planned a “picnic” in the garden and asked to take some pictures in the gazebo.

Little did I know, he would get down on one knee! He proposed to me next to beautiful white roses and surrounded by my favorite people, making my absolute dream come true. After the surprising proposal, he surprised me again with champagne and decorations in our hotel room. This was the most magical proposal, starting our new adventure together!
