how we met
Chad and I met while working, him as a fire fighter and myself as an EMT. Chad messaged me first and from there our relationship started. We laugh about the first time Chad asked me out as I responded to him “I guess so”. I think we would both agree it is the best “I guess so” we’ve ever had in our lives.
how they asked
Chad surprised both my family and I proposing at my family’s annual surprise Christmas event that we do every year. Chad and I were planning the surprise event for De. 15, 2018; the sleigh ride jingle bell tour in Jackson, NH. We had planned the event together, but Chad added his own extra surprise. Chad had gone the week before and done the sleigh ride while I was at work, to do his research on where he would propose. In my mind that is going above and beyond what I would have ever expected a guy would do for me. Our friend Mary knew about the proposal and got a photographer to catch it on camera for the two of us. Chad knew about the photographer and worked with her to find the perfect spot to not give it away that he was proposing. He told us that people are just walking around taking pictures for the venue. I had not read about this while booking the Christmas event, so I was a little confused. Every year we take a family picture, so we did it prior to the sleigh ride, as we all got together to take the picture chad dropped to one knee and asked me to marry him. It was so special to share this moment with not only Chad, but my whole family. After he proposed we went on the sleigh ride and were able to celebrate the rest of the day. In my mind it was the perfect Hallmark proposal, he knows I am slightly obsessed with Hallmark movies.
