Kayla and Dillon
How We Met
We both attended college at West Virginia University, where we were acquaintances. I actually thought he was quite annoying then! I moved to Charlotte, NC in November of 2014. While out at a bar cheering on the Carolina panthers during a playoff game, I got a weird feeling someone was staring at me. Once I realized it was Dillon we walked over to meet each other. He explained he had just moved to Charlotte too (talk about perfect timing!). We eventually went on a few dates and the rest is history!
How He Asked
We love to travel! So for vacation this year we decided to go to Iceland. While we were exploring southern Iceland, Dillon told me we were going to detour from our itinerary (I love to plan, so we always have an itinerary). He explained that he had read about a secret waterfall earlier that morning on a blog and wanted to go. I agreed that would be fun, so he pulled over and parked. We walked through a field of purple flowers to a beautiful gorge. There were no other tourists in sight! It looked like a scene right out of Game of Thrones. It was so beautiful!
Once we reached the waterfall Dillon began to set up his GoPro to take photos. While pretending to get a photo of us he got down on one knee. With a wave of emotion I instantly began to cry and laugh all at the same time. Dillon got so choked up that he couldn’t get his words out. Once he calmed down and got the question out I said YES! It was such a magical moment that I will cherish in my heart forever!
