Aubree and Jordan
How We Met
I was the first girl he met at college our freshman year. One of his friends that I knew told me to come over and meet his new college friends so I would know some people before I moved in a few days later. We met in Jordan’s dorm room with a few other people there. We instantly hit it off and became really close friends.
How He Asked
One of the first things I told my dad on my first visit home from college back in September of 2014 was that I was going to marry my best friend, Jordan, someday. Saturday, June 25, 2016, my best friend and the love of my life asked me to marry him! We were camping all weekend and Saturday, his mom said, “Let’s take the gondola up Crystal mountain!” So we did. We walked around for a bit, and the view was GREAT! It was cloudy so we couldn’t see Mount Rainier the best, but it was still so perfect! We walked around and then at this platform that they have at the top (that’s actually for weddings), Jordan’s mom said to me, “Let’s take a selfie!” That’s when Jordan’s dad secretly gave him the box. Then his mom or dad said, “Okay now let’s get one of Jordan and Aubree!” So I was getting ready to pose for the picture and he went down on one knee!!! I put my hands completely over my face and then opened my fingers so I could see through the spaces, and he really was down on one knee proposing to me! I couldn’t believe it! I dragged my hands down my face and shook my head yes! I couldn’t even talk I was shaking and crying so much. It was more perfect than I ever imagined it would be. 6,872 feet up brought him down to one knee.
