How We Met

We first met as kids through our siblings, and played at the same little league for baseball—I’ve known him most of my life. I had a huge crush on him when we were younger but was too shy to say anything! We lost touch through high school but reconnected in college where we immediately became friends again and eventually dated. I always tell him that I finally nailed down my first love.

How They Asked

We drove to this gorgeous lighthouse nearby in late October to see the water and foliage. We made ourselves a cheese tray to have a date outside and just enjoy each others company at a small picnic. When we got to the lighthouse, our mutual friend was playing our song and I turned around to see him down on one knee! My best friends were there to capture the moment as well. After we drove home on cloud 9, I had a surprise party waiting for me at our home with our closest family and friends to celebrate with us. It was truly magical!
