How We Met

At a Women’s Motorcycle Day event in 2017. He was in the group of me helping all the girls with their motorcycles that day and we immediately clicked.

How They Asked

He took me on a romantic horseback ride around the neighborhood at sunrise. We got to a small clearing near our neighbor’s house, and my best friend from high school was hiding in the bushes to surprise me, along with a few other neighbors and friends. He proposed and we popped a bottle of champagne there, then rode back to our house just in time for another surprise – an engagement party and breakfast waiting to celebrate with us! He planned everything without me ever knowing. Later, I learned that he had also called both of my parents to ask their permission weeks before, and had shared the entire thing on his instagram live.
