Kaylee and Tyler

Kaylee's Proposal in Disney’s French Quarter resort

How We Met

Tyler and I actually met in high school marching band (I know what your thinking, “that one time at band camp”) I was in Colorguard, the thing we’re you twirl rifles and flags, and he played drums. The year we met, I was a sophomore and he was a freshman. For most of the marchingband show were right next to eachother and I would always catch him staring at me during practice. Being a whole year older than him, I just dismissed it as the weird new kid being a creep. As the year went on, I discovered more and more about the weird new kid. First off, we both had the same lunch period, and he actually sat at the same table as I. I decided to scoot down to where he sat and we started to talk. As I got to know him, I began to see the weird kid as a kind, sweet boy that I was actually falling for. We became close friends by the end of that year and started to dating the following school year. He’s my high school sweetheart.

How He Asked

Tyler and I have a very big Disney obession. Anything we can find to celebrate in our lives we celebrate with Disney, especially being that we only live an hour away. This time we were celebrating our fourth Anniversary of being together. We made dinner reservations at Disney’s Yachtman Steakhouse for 8:10, and planned to stay the night. We had an amazing time at dinner, it truly was a wonderful place for this occasion. Dinner took a few hours, so we ended up getting back to the hotel pretty late. All I wanted to do was take off my makeup and go to bed but when I open the door, I saw a cute little basket on the table. At first, I thought it had to be something the hotel sent up for our anniversary, but as I turn around to ask Tyler, he was down on one knee asking me to be his WIFE! I was in compele shock, to the point of asking him if this was really happening. Of course I said yes, and the surprise basket turned out to be custom mickey ears, one embroidered with “I asked” and the other with “I said yes!”. Suddenly, what was originally just a small anniversary get away became one of the most special and memorable moments of our lives (so far).
