Taylor and Ryan

How We Met

Ryan and I met when I was in 8th grade and he was a freshman in high school. I had some friends over and he tagged along and we became friends after that night. My freshman year of high school we became closer and he eventually asked me to be his girlfriend!

How They Asked

Fast forward 5.5 years, December 14, 2019, and he asked me if I wanted to go on a date to see a Christmas light show, which I of course said yes! I am a sucker for themed dates. I had no clue what was going to happen that night. While walking and looking at the lights I could tell he was a bit distracted but I just assumed he wasn’t that into looking at Christmas decorations. We looped back toward the entrance and as we stopped to look at the last bit of lights he said, “What are they doing here?” I turned around and my parents, brother and his mom were all standing there! I was so confused and turned to look at Ryan and he was on one knee. I truly think we both blacked out at that point because all I remember is crying and he doesn’t even remember what he said! I can’t wait to marry my high school sweetheart.
