How We Met

We are high school sweethearts! We started dating when I was 16 years old and Jarrod was 17. And the rest was history… We’ve now been together for almost 9 years and through high school, college, and now young adulthood we have continuously grown together and have created an amazing bond. It’s been fun, and at times challenging, to go through life transitions together all the way from driver’s licenses to our first apartment… We are so hopeful and excited to see how the rest of our love story unfolds!

How They Asked

We flew to NYC a few days before Christmas just to spend the weekend there. It’s our favorite city and we have plans to move there once I finish my graduate program next year. I had a feeling he was going to propose during this trip because he had accidentally dropped a couple of hints a few weeks before and also because when you’re together for 8 years you know it could happen at any moment lol!

He took me to Brooklyn so that we could see the city’s skyline and proceeded to start talking about our future in New York. Before I knew it he was on one knee asking me to marry him. Despite my suspicions, I was still so surprised and overwhelmed with excitement! It was truly the most thoughtful proposal I could have ever asked for. We are so excited for our wedding and to spend the rest of our lives together!
