Jacqueline and Trent
How We Met
We met freshman year of high school, I was a young 14 and he was 15. We started “dating” about a month later. We have been inseparable ever since…. through dances, football games, prom, graduation, and now college together: he is my best friend. I knew I was going to marry him when I was 17. He knows me inside and out and basically everything about me. He always puts me first and takes care of me. There is no doubt we are soulmates.
How He Asked
Every year my family goes to Lake Powell for a vacation. This lake is honestly my favorite place on Earth and my second dome. It has become a tradition to always go see Rainbow Bridge when we are there. Even though I have seen it about 20 times,(not exaggerating) I am simply astounded each and every time seeing its beauty and the power of nature. When we reached the base of it, Trent and I were going to take our yearly picture underneath it. While posing, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.
I was immediately overcome with so much emotion and so much happiness. I had imagined this moment over and over in my head a million times, but it was so surreal and SO much better than I could of even dreamed.
