Kaylee and Alexei

Kaylee's Proposal in Lake Tahoe, CA

How We Met

Alexei and I started dating 6 years ago during our junior year of high school. He has been my best friend and number one supporter since the day we met. He encouraged me to go to school and helped me all the way until graduation. I definitely wouldn’t be half the person I am today without him. We have really grown up together over these last 6 years and I am so excited to be able to spend the rest of my life with him! Here is a picture from our very first date!

How He Asked

Lake Tahoe is a special place that Alexei has visited since he was a little kid and he has been taking me there since we started dating. It has definitely become a special place in our relationship. Alexei has 4 sisters who played an important role in capturing this beautiful moment for us. His sister was a film major in college so it wasn’t unusual for her to be filming and taking pictures on our beautiful walk in the woods of Lake Tahoe.

During our snowy walk Alexei took my hands and started getting all mushy, telling me how much he loved me, and acting super nervous lol. I knew right then he was about to make me the happiest girl alive! He got down on one knee in the snow and asked me to marry him!
