Grace and Tanner
How We Met
Tanner and I met in the eighth grade at a church camp and had kept in touch through written letters and phone calls. It wasn’t until senior year that he had asked me on our first date to a Garth Brooks Concert. Two weeks later he asked me to be his girlfriend and we shared our first kiss. We were together for two years when he asked me to marry him.
How He Asked
We had been long distance throughout our whole relationship, so by my surprise a few days before he asked he had driven nine hours to my house to visit for the weekend, I had no idea. I had been wanting to get pictures done of the two of us and my sister offered to help. So we went downtown in Tulsa to find some spots worthy of a photo and we did, we walked up to Guthrie Green which was supposed to have lit up Christmas lights throughout, however, they had not turned on yet, so we waited until they would. However they never did, but we continued onto the stage area and began to take some photos. Did some smiling ones and a few kissing ones. We kissed and before I knew it he was down on one knee asking for my hand. Mine and his family began to cheer out of nowhere, they had been hiding this whole time.
