How We Met

I went to hang out with a friend at the mall in 9th grade, and he brought Anton with him! Anton liked me right away, but I friend-zoned him for two years. After a year and a half, he got fed up and stopped talking to me for a few months, then he sent me a text on New Year’s Eve and I started to like him! We went on a couple of dates and before long fell in love :) This pic is us at my Sweet 16, officially dating!

How They Asked

Anton asked me on the dock at our cottage at sunset! He enlisted my mom to get my nails done beforehand, my best friend to take me shopping for a “graduation party” outfit, and my brother, his girlfriend, and my mom to set up the dock the night of. That night, my family threw a graduation party for my brother and me, and after dinner, Anton took me down to the lake where I saw a blanket and candles set up along the dock, and he got down on one knee and asked me to be his forever!

I completely blacked out, apparently, I didn’t even say yes – I just laughed and cried and put the ring on. Then he said that my family’s in the tree nearby taking pictures, and everyone came out to celebrate. Then we went back up to the cottage where my cousins, grandparents, and aunts and uncles were pouring pink champagne for us!
