How We Met

David and I met through mutual friends a little over 7 years ago. We spent that night dancing, laughing, and having so much fun together. I knew I had met someone very special. 7 years later he still has kept that smile on my face!

How He Asked

The day Dave proposed to me I was at work like any other Saturday. I thought he was at work as well. Little did I know he was busy making signs with the help of our friends and family that spelt out ” will you marry me?”. After work he suggested we take a hike on a mountain near where we live. At the top of the mountain is a stone building that serves as a lookout to all of the surrounding towns. He packed a backpack with a scope and we planned to hike to the top and see the sights. When we made it to the top Dave set up the scope and told me to look into it and when I did I got the best surprise of my life! Miles below were all of our closest family and friends holding up those signs that spelt out ” will you marry me?”!

I was so shocked! I couldn’t believe it! When I turned away from the scope I saw Dave on one knee holding a box with the most beautiful ring I had ever seen inside! We were both speechless at first but finally he asked and I said yes!

It was a moment I will never forget. After we made it off the mountain we headed to a near by friends house where Dave had an engagement party waiting for us! We laughed, cried, and celebrated with our friends and family for hours. I can truly say it was one of the best days of my life!
