How We Met

Henry and I met the first day of college. We were freshman dorm neighbors and immediately became best friends. We were in a lot of the same classes, so most days consisted of studying and going to the dining hall together. Both of us were hesitant to make a move because we thought the other was way out of our league. But after six months of friendship, Henry kissed me under a pillow fort that we had built together and asked me to be his girlfriend.

How They Asked

We are both a part of the Class of 2020, and it was difficult when the pandemic canceled all of our ceremonies and celebrations. To celebrate our accomplishments, we booked a trip to Scotland with our friends from college. Little did I know, Henry was planning to propose on this trip and had all of our friends in on it. On Thanksgiving day, Henry asked me to marry him at the Fairy Pools in Scotland. It was the most beautiful location with waterfalls and mountains surrounding us in every direction. Right after I said yes, it began to rain. Luckily, Henry packed ponchos for us and we were able to soak in the magical moment.
