Kate and Chris | Snowboard Proposal

Kate & Chris 086

How We Met: Chris and I grew up together and have been friends since junior high. We shared a kiss when we were younger, which never amounted to anything more, but we were always friends. We went to separate colleges and when we moved back home, we began hanging out again. We realized that there was more to our relationship than just being friends. We began dating on Saint Patrick’s Day 2007, and we have been inseparable ever since.

How He Asked: We love snowboarding! We take a yearly trip to Killington, VT and each year I would ask Chris if we could get our picture taken by the photography staff on the mountain. For various reasons we would end up not getting it done. On the first day of our vacation we headed up to the peak of Killington Mountain and a photographer approached us to get our photo taken. Chris agreed and I was so excited to finally be getting a snapshot of us. The photographer took a picture of us and then said for Chris to step out of the shot so he could get one of just me. A few photos were taken and the next thing I know, Chris was down on one knee asking me to become his wife! He set the entire thing up and I had no clue! He even had two mini bottles of champagne hidden in his jacket. I was excited when I thought I was just getting a photo of us on the top of our favorite mountain…but when he popped the question he made me the happiest girl in the world! I could barely make it down the mountain after the big moment.
