Madelyn and Riley

Proposal Ideas Meeks Bay, Lake Tahoe, California

How We Met

Riley and I met through a dating website. We talked for a few weeks before agreeing to meet up for a date. We planned the date for a Mexican restaurant and Riley offered to pick me up I declined just in case he ended up being a total weirdo. We ended up sitting there talking until the restaurant was closed and he quickly asked for a second date later that week. Four and a half years later here we are.

Madelyn's Proposal in Meeks Bay, Lake Tahoe, California

how they asked

For Labor Day Riley and I had been planning for a while to go to his family’s cabin in Tahoe. One of his sister’s Jenny had planned to come up, as well as 2 of our closest friends, Mike & Lauren. We were the first ones to the cabin and we’re just hanging out and enjoying each other’s company (in between me grilling him/complaining that we would never get engaged). We went to hang out and have a drink on the pier while waiting for everyone else.

Riley said he wanted to go check to see if they were all here yet and that he needed a new drink, I promptly finished my wine and sent him on his way to get new drinks. I was beyond surprised when he came back and I looked up to see him on one knee. The first words out of my mouth were “are you kidding me? are you serious? Are you sure? Like really sure?!” Of course, after that, I said yes!! I couldn’t be happier to be marrying my best friend!
