how we met
We originally met online and talked for awhile before meeting in person at Kody’s apartment. We watched the absolute worst scary Christmas movie from Red Box, broke open some wine and climbed the roof. Surrounded by Christmas lights and that perfect cold air, we talked about ourselves and our goals, where we see ourselves in 10 years–the real things. It was a genuine connection right off the bat.
how they asked
Kody had set up a photo shoot with our amazing friend and photographer, Buddy Secor, on the 1 year since we met. The Game of Thrones theme fit perfectly in this little wooded park. He had us right on the bank of a stream with a perfect fairytale-esk bridge in the background. Buddy even stepped into the freezing water to get the perfect picture right as Kody got on one knee. Cue the shock and immediate happy tears. Even once we got back home Kody had planted a treasure hunt around the apartment. Following clues I found an actual old treasure trunk filled with all my favorite records, candies, candles, flowers, bath bombs, and love notes written over months. There were a lot of tears that day.
