Karlie and Jake
How We Met
We met in high school, where we both attended, but weren’t friends as he was a few grades ahead of me. Then, in college, we both attended Union University, which is a small private school. We proceeded to be in the same friend group and became great friends!! Three years later he finally asked me out!! Our first date was on 12-27-14 and we got engaged on 11-25-15.
How He Asked
My mother and I went to New York for the Thanksgiving holiday! We were just going for a girls trip, but a week before we went Jake asked my dad for my hand in marriage and then proceed to ask my parents if he could fly up to NYC and surprise me! So in a weeks time, him, his parents, and my parents schemed a plan. My mom and I flew in on Monday, shopped, and saw Aladdin. On Wednesday morning, we started site seeing, and my mom said we should go to Central Park! When we got to Central Park we walked to the Bethesda Fountain where Jake was sitting, waiting for me. I quickly turned and my mother was walking off and I turned again and walked toward him and he finally noticed me. He proposed right there in front of the fountain and even had a photographer! I said yes! We then did an engagement shoot all throughout Central Park!
