How We Met

Andrew and I first met when I was 13 and he was 15. We were at a mutual friends Halloween party around the lake he grew up on in Michigan. He handed me his phone number on a napkin, we enjoyed a hayride and ran around with our friends. We were SO YOUNG. For years we dated off and on, I always thought we would be together forever, we re-kindled things and got more serious when I started college. I moved to Kansas to be closer to the family we were long distance for a year and now 6 years later we both live in KC!

How They Asked

I HAD NO IDEA! 2 weeks before our proposal that he was planning so secretly a photographer friend reached out to me with a fun concept and asked us to be the models, little did I know that she was in on and it and so was he! They planned it to make it my idea- so I booked it for us!

We showed up to this beautiful area, called Green Dirt Farm where they have a sheep farm, wine, and cheese. We took photos for 20 minutes and the lighting was so beautiful. We were lead by the sheep keeper to the pasture to take some cool photos in there, which to be honest I was SO EXCITED to get close to the sheep!

Our photographer asked me to stand in front of Andrew, and he was going to come up behind me and scoop me away and spin. So on the count of 3, she told me to brace myself, well she counted and then said “turn around!” I was so confused, I then turned around and saw Andrew down on one knee.

He proposed, and after we took a moment to take it all in with a picnic the venue had set up for us with their wine, sheep cheese, and a beautiful cheese board to keep! The day was more than I ever could have imagined. We are still on cloud 9.
