how we met
We met at a restaurant we both worked at almost five years ago. He was a chef and I was a server. Both of us were born in California but moved to North Carolina with our families when we were older. We lived and worked together for the first three years we were together.
how they asked
Jake and I got engaged in March 2018. We took a trip to the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia and stayed at a historic inn – The Mimslyn Inn. There was a restaurant and prohibition themed bar in the downstairs portion of the inn and we happened to be there on their jazz night. A classic jazz trio played music while we socialized with a few locals. Once we got back to our room, Jake used the opportunity to surprise me with his great grandmothers ring as I was sitting on the edge of the bed. The ring is amazing, I obviously cried and I most definitely said yes.
