Chelsea and Taylor
How We Met
Taylor and I have known each other since 7th grade. Growing up in a small town we were very close friends. Even when we went off to college on opposite sides of New York we stayed in touch. We started dating junior year of college and after school, our relationship brought us all the way to Washington state. Taylor was always saying we could get married in five years or even 10, I was in no rush to get married and I always knew he was half joking.
How He Asked
One day he asked if I wanted to go climb mailbox peak, a great hike in the Cascades, I said I would love to. So on July 29, bright and early we started our hike. Once we made it to the top, Taylor asked me to go see if there was a book to sign in the mailbox. I opened the mailbox and there was an empty ring box, I turned around and Taylor was down on one knee!
I was so surprised, but said yes immediately! Then as if I couldn’t be more surprised some of our closest friends jumped up from behind the rocks and popped the champagne! It was the most amazing day and now I am so excited to marry the love of my life!
