Emily and Ryan

How We Met

I met Ryan at a bonfire at my sister’s house. We share a love for the outdoors, travel and adventure. We clicked immediately and have been inseparable ever since, going on trips to Tennessee, exploring with my son and spending time with family and friends.

How He Asked

I met Ryan last summer at a bonfire at my sister’s house and since then, he has truly become my best friend, partner and the love of my life. He planned a trip to Gatlinburg, TN with my family, his family and several of our closest friends. I had no idea that this was the reason for the vacation. Prior to the trip, he spoke with my father, my son’s father, and my son.

Proposal Ideas The proposal was in Gatlinburg, TN in the Smoky Mountains atop a mountain.

With their blessing, we took a sky lift to the top of the mountain and walked hand in hand to the top. There was a beautiful wood carved heart at the very top and we stood in front of it to take a photo. The next thing I knew, he was down on one knee. Of course, I said YES! I can’t wait to spend my life with this man.
