Kylie and Jacob
How We Met
My name is Kylie and my fiancé and I are high school sweethearts! We met when we were 14 and always hung out with the same friends and had similar classes. We both dated other people but became best friends in the process, texting for hours and doing homework and projects together.
Finally, after two years of just being friends, he asked me to our school’s Homecoming dance by laying out hundreds of tea-lights spelling out “homecoming?”. Then he asked me out on our first date, asked me to be his girlfriend in the back of his truck, and 3 years later asked me to marry him!
How He Asked
Every summer since I was 7 my family and I have gone to visit my grandmother on her gorgeous property in northern Idaho. So many childhood memories have been made at my grandma’s house and it is somewhere that is very close to my heart. This past summer my family and I did our normal trip to see her and Jacob (my now fiancé) stayed home to work. One afternoon at my grandma’s house, my family got me dressed up for a nice lunch and we sat out on the back porch. My aunt yelled out “look there’s a deer” and I turned around to see Jacob out in the field of my grandmother’s property with the biggest bouquet of roses! I was so shocked to see him! I ran down into the field, and he got on one knee and proposed saying “I knew from our first date you were the one for me. Will you marry me?” and I sad yes of course! I could not have pictured the proposal any other way. It was everything I ever imagined and so special to be at a place that means so much to me!
