Katie and Jeffrey

& i said yes

How We Met

I first met Jeffrey at church in April of 2010. We became best friends and were inseparable. After a few months Jeffrey took me down to the pond and asked me to be his girlfriend. I gave him a hard time and jokingly replied.. hmm stay single…or be with you… of course I’ll be your girlfriend!

This is the very first picture we took 5 minutes after he asked me out!

How He Asked

The weekend of May 1st 2016 Jeffrey and I and our two best friends Tom (@tmcgrath) and Tiffany (@_cheekyt_) traveled back to San Diego for a vacation. Little did I know what was actually being planned.

On the last day of the trip, Jeffrey planned a scavenger hunt with clues at each memorable spot him and I had in San Diego including the church I first met him at.

The last clue lead her back to the pond where our relationship originally began. I found Jeffrey there with a ring of sunflowers (my favorite flower) and my man in the middle of them all with a giant smile on his face. I was so excited to see him!

As I walked the long trail down to the pond I couldn’t help but think how much I love him. When I finally got to the pond he said “hey baby doll, I love you. You know this is where it all first started and I though this is the perfect spot to bring you back to one last time before the house sells.”

He got down on one knee and asked her to be with him forever in the same spot their relationship started in almost on the exact day, 7 years prior.

I looking into his eyes and all I could do was smile and nod my head yes!
