Kathryn and William
How We Met: Colby and I met though mutual friends in college while we were both seeing other people, but fast forward a few years later we were at dinner together with friends and couldn’t stop talking. From that day on, we were dating!
Colby’s work took us on extensive and exiting travels all around the world, from NYC to Dubai we got to see the world together but we always had one special place, Vail, Colorado.
How He Asked: In late summer of 2014, we took our annual summer trip to Vail and brought our sweet doggy, Tanz. One day we were about to go for a hike but Colby said he had to wait for a package that was being delivered to the house and refused to leave until it came. He said he was waiting on some work documents so I never questioned it!
He opened it quickly and said lets go on a hike so we grabbed the dog and headed up the mountain. He didn’t have anything but a light jacket so I didn’t expect that hike to be any different than the others. We got up to the mountain and Colby didn’t want to stop in our normal spot, but instead found a clearing in between ski slopes and set our backpack down there to play with Tanz like we usually did. I turned around to grab something and when I looked back Colby was on one knee and asked me to be his wife.
From that moment on it has been such an amazing journey that I look forward to more each day.
