Kristina and Tyler

How We Met

We have been dating since April of 2014. We met through mutual friends while I was in high school. Once graduating, he began attending Liberty University and I attended Appalachian State University. After a year and a half of long distance, he transferred to Appalachian to finally become a mountaineer! We will graduate this upcoming May, him with a bachelors in finance & me with a bachelors degree in social work!

how they asked

During a “girl’s weekend” to celebrate my recently engaged bestie, we drove to Banner Elk Winery! Myself and three other friends began the winery tour. As we rounded the corner of the vines, I saw Tyler. He walked towards me holding the box with tears in his eyes, he asked me to marry him! I said YES! We turned around to see a few other friends there to congratulate us. Shortly after, our families joined us by the river for celebratory wine. It was the most perfect afternoon with all of my favorite people.
