How We Met

We met in 5th grade when Kainen moved into my childhood neighborhood!

How They Asked

Kainen, my highschool sweetheart asked me to marry him when we were on vacation in my favorite place ever, the white mountains. We took our 2 toddler boys and our dog to do a vacation in NH. We planned to do hiking and kayaking. We took 2 double kayaks and decided to kayak the saco river. It was a stunning ride and our 2 kids and dog were havjng a blast. We decided to stop along a sandy beach and have a picnic. It was a beautiful spot just us with the mountains in the distance. We ate and played on the beach and suddenly I hear kainen say, “Marissa Bertsch I have loved you since I was a little boy” and i turned around and saw my dream ring! We couldnt be happier and we were surrounded by the ones I love the most. The picture was taken by our oldest son Karter who is 4. We were super impressed he was able to work the camera and got us!
