Erin and Zach

Marriage Proposal Ideas in Piney River Ranch, Vail, Colorado

How We Met

Zach and I went to the same high school in Denver, Colorado. We knew of each other, but never talked or hung out. We went our separate ways to college, Zach went to University of Arizona and I went to nursing school at Capital University in Columbus, Ohio. We always came back to our homes in Colorado during summer, winter breaks, and fall breaks. Some of our mutual friends started to hang out throughout college when we were all home. As nursing school is, there is not much time for anything other than studying! So after we both graduated college in 2013 we both came back to our homes in Colorado for jobs. I drove Zach home from a friend’s house one night that summer and it was fate after that.

How He Asked

The proposal that Zach planned was a complete surprise (as you can tell in the video)! We were at his sister’s wedding up at PIney River Ranch in Vail, Colorado. Maggie, Zach’s sister, her husband Drew, and Zach came up with the idea to surprise me during the bouquet toss. Maggie and Drew are some of the most selfless, genuine people we know. Maggie had all the single girls line up outside, and everyone counted down. I was thinking to myself, “I better get this bouquet…” As they counted down, Maggie ended up walking down and handing the bouquet directly to me. I thought to myself, well I guess that means I am next? Then out of the blue, Zach swooped in on one knee and asked me to marry him.

The most wonderful proposal a girl could ask for.
