How We Met

Hunter and I are high school sweethearts! During our Junior year, we were class President and Vice President of the Student Council. It was your typical young love… Then he went off to the Air Force Academy and I went off to school in Texas. After time apart we both realized we couldn’t be without the other anymore- and the rest is history! He’s a pilot now and I work in politics- but no matter where life sends us next or what the world throws at us- I know we will make it. We’ve grown up so much together- and now we get to grow old together; it’s really such a blessing.

How They Asked

After a crazy few months with the campaign season for me & long days of flying for him- we knew we wanted to get away for a while just us (if we could!) We ended up booking a trip to the beautiful island of Saint Lucia. We had planned to go out on the water for one of the days, so we made our way down to Hummingbird beach to wait for our boat. While we were on the dock overlooking the majestic Piton mountains, Hunter asked THE question.

I was so overwhelmed with happiness and excitement and love that I started kissing and hugging him- and completely forgot to actually answer him or put on the ring (I did both eventually- don’t worry!) Hunter had our photographers hiding in the trees to capture the whole thing. We spent the rest of the day on a private boat charter soaking at the moment, just us two. It was the most magical & romantic day- the happiest one of my life!
