Katarina and Christian

How We Met

Our story began 7 1/2 years ago. We were both juniors in high school, and both played on the soccer team. We had been texting for a few weeks, and mainly saw each other at school. Finally, we got a night together. His cousin, who happens to be one of my best friends set up a little get together to hang out. Instantly, I knew there was something special. A few weeks later, after our soccer games, he had asked me to go on a haunted hayride with some friends from school. The entire time we were on the ride we were attached at the hip, but I knew he had something on his mind. Before the night was over, I asked him what he was thinking about, to which he replied, “will you go out with me”? I immediately said yes!! Over the next few years, we went to college, got our first place together, got two puppies, and got our first “real” jobs. Everything seemed to be falling into place.

How He Asked

Everyone would always seem to ask the awkward question of, “when are you guys going to get married”. I knew when he was ready, it would happen. Finally, 7 1/2 years later, he took me to the dog park that we take our puppies to every week, we walked around took some pictures, and he leads me towards the path that overlooks the water and a park across the way. I didn’t think anything of it because we typically go down the same route every week, I was walking a little bit ahead to catch up to the dogs, and when I turned around, there he was on one knee! I couldn’t believe it! Finally, after all of these years, he asked me to be his wife! From high school sweetheart to fiancé!
