Taylor and Taylor


How We Met

We met on thanksgiving day back in 2010 but didn’t begin dating until January of 2011. We met through my sisters husbands family as they were neighbors growing up. For months they tried setting the two of us up, telling us that we were perfect for each other. But when I heard his name was Taylor, I said, “There is no way I am dating someone with the same name as me”! Well it didn’t take too long for them to get us in the same room together to meet. A few days later we spent more time together and since then we have basically been inseparable.

how they asked

This day couldn’t have been more perfect. Every year we take fall photos for our Christmas cards and it was that time of year again so we planned our fall photos. Little did I know, it was going to be so much more than that. Due to weather being crazy windy and rainy we had to move our outdoor photos to an indoor rustic barn which was perfect. Our photographer and my fiance set up the sweetest, most romantic picnic inside the barn. We began popping a bottle of champagne and right then, he pulled out a red box.



I absolutely had no idea and was speechless.




He opened the box and asked me to make him the happiest man by marrying him.


Of course, I said YES! We shared some tears, well lots of tears and just soaked up the moment.


I had been waiting for this moment for almost 6 years.


After we finished up our “fall photos” we headed to a beautiful resort to celebrate our engagement with one another.
