How We Met

Wyatt and I met through Baylor University athletics. He was a running back for the football team and I was a gymnast on the Acrobatics & Tumbling team.

How They Asked

I am the oldest of four girls in my family. Every time one of us turned 16 my dad would take us on a big trip. The baby, Emma, turned 16 and we all went to NYC to celebrate. The last night, my dad said: “This is the biggest surprise yet!” I thought it would be a surprise for my sister!

We arrived at the Renaissance Hotel in the R Lounge (it overlooked all of the Time squares). When I turned the corner I saw Wyatt in a suit with candles all around him! Everyone in the restaurant was staring and cheering as he got down on one knee- it was so magical!
