Kristen and Gregory

How We Met

We started dating in high school. I went to stay the night with one of my cousins while my parents celebrated their wedding anniversary. He actually had a date with another girl who cancelled last minute and ended up hanging out at a friends house who happened to be dating my cousin, Shelby. From the moment we met, all we could do was smile at each other and speak through our eyes. A week later we went on our first date and started dating that night. He was my first boyfriend, first kiss, and only love. We’ve been together 7 years, through college, his police academy, first jobs, and every other big life change and stage you could possibly think of and I couldn’t imagine my life without him.

How He Asked

We went to Las Vegas two years ago  as our first vacation together. We had an absolute blast! We decided to book a trip to celebrate our birthdays (they are both in December) in Vegas. Little did I know, Gregory had intended the trip to be about our engagement and asking me to be his wife. On my birthday, I wanted to cross riding the High Roller off my bucket list so we made a trip to highest observation deck in the world. I spent a majority of the ride taking pictures and in awe of how beautiful the lights and the city looked when I turned around to see Gregory on one knee. He began to tell me sweet words and slipping my dream ring on finger. It was a dream and the happiest day of my life.
