Katarina and Christopher

How We Met

Chris and I met in high school our freshman year. We had one class together but I can’t recall us ever talking to one another. The following year we met again through mutual friends and became really close really fast. Over the next year we grew closer and then apart for a while until the summer before our senior year of high school. He asked me to be his girlfriend the first of August and we have been together ever since.

How He Asked

Chris proposed on our four year anniversary while we were on our first vacation together at Disneyland. After spending the whole day in the parks we went back to our hotel to clean up and head out for dinner and more park time (gotta make that ticket worth it). We had a Fast Pass for the World of Color show in California Adventure and thought it would be a great way to finish off the night. Free it finished, he drug me up to the front of the pier so I could continue to ooh and ahh at the lights. After a few minutes I felt a tap on my shoulder and when I turned around, there he was on one knee with the ring. It was a really magical moment and I most certainly cried, something I never do in public. And for being surrounded by hundreds of people, it was very intimate. Surprisingly, only one woman really saw. I still regret not having her take a picture but I was too caught up in the moment to care.
