Katie and Eric
How We Met:Eric and I met at a graduation party when I was going into my Junior year of high school. It was one of our mutual friends’ party and we had never met. Being the immature teenagers we were, we enlisted in our friend to set us up. After a few dates, Eric planned this cute little scavenger hunt to make our relationship official. That summer, we spent a week in the Adirondack Mountains with my parents. Being out in the woods, with no electric or showers, I really discovered how in love I really was. We attended Temple University together for a year and have lived together in Lancaster, PA with our two fur babies for 3 years.
How He Asked: After being together for almost 5 years, we started talking about rings, but Eric had convinced me that my ring was on back order until September. We took a trip in May to Mexico with 6 of our closest friends. One of the evenings, we decided to take some pictures throughout the resort with our two best friends, one of whom is a photographer. Throughout our resort were these little terraces with different cultural structures. After walking through several of the terraces, we ended up at the pillar terrace located near our room. At one point, we were back to back against the pillar. As I turned around, Eric was down on one knee and I was so surprised. We were able to spend the rest of the evening celebrating our engagement…and YES, tequila was involved. It was the perfect ending to a perfect trip.
