Amy and Tyler

Proposal Ideas Columbia, Missouri

How We Met

On a hot summer day in August 2013, I hesitantly accepted an invite from a friend of a friend to play sand volleyball at Wave Taco in St. Louis, MO. Little did I know that I would be filling in for a team that my future husband, Tyler, would be on. After a victory and conversation over a celebratory drink we knew right then and there this was the beginning of our happily ever after. You truly do find love when you least expect it.

Amy and Tyler's Engagement in Columbia, Missouri

How He Asked

August is a big month for us; we each have a birthday, we celebrate our anniversary and now we have something even greater to celebrate, our engagement. The morning of August 1st Tyler told me we were going to be celebrating my birthday a few days early and that he had something planned as a surprise.

We arrived in Columbia, Missouri where we then drove to an open field and it became clear the surprise was a hot air balloon ride. After helping inflate the hot air balloon we paused for a photo opportunity before the flight. Rather than standing by my side for the photo, Tyler had another surprise as he got down on one knee and proposed.

I said YES! We rode off into the morning sunrise excited to start this next chapter of life together.
