Blake and Katy

How We Met

Blake and I have known each other since birth, literally! We were born a few days apart in the same hospital and since our moms were friends, we had our first date in the hospital! We grew up friends and started dating when we were 14 years old. Ever since then, we have been madly in love. We walked with each other through junior high, high school, and college and we cannot believe that we get to call this story our love story!

How He Asked

The proposal started early that morning. Around 11 pm, my sister handed me a letter from Blake that told me that today would be the day that I have been waiting for and that my sister would take me to my first stop. She drove me to my favorite, local brunch stop where I was surprised by my mom and Blake’s mom. After brunch, my mom handed me a 2nd letter that told me to go to my favorite nail salon. Once there, my best friend surprised me and we got my nails all ready for the engagement. After my nails were done, my best friend handed me another letter that told me to head home. at home, my sisters, Blake’s sisters, and our moms were at home excited to help me get ready.

After a sweet time getting my makeup and hair done, I was given a final letter that told me I needed to be blindfolded and taken to the final stop. My sister drove me, blindfolded to the secret location. After she got me out of the car, I saw Blake standing on a dock at the lake. He walked me down to his set up that had pictures of our whole journey together. After talking to me through his favorite memories of us, he got down on one knee and proposed. It was the most special, thought out day EVER!
