Lisa and Lucas
How We Met
We met five and a half years ago through our two good college friends, Eric and Sonja, who are now married. My fiance had met Eric while working with him at a college bar. I have also been friends with Sonja for years, meeting in college. Eric convinced Lucas to come out to meet Sonja’s “cute friend” at a dive bar one night almost 6 years ago. We like to joke that we met at a dive bar and still go back to the bar sometimes to reminisce and get a drink.
How He Asked
We wanted to take a vacation after I finished graduate school and decided to go to Iceland. We stayed in Reykjavik and rented a car to drive around the golden circle. We planned to see numerous waterfalls, geysers, a black sand beach, and visit many different restaurants and shops. I didn’t know that he had snuck an engagement ring into his carry-on camera bag and hid it from me for our trip! The first day we drove out to Skogafoss waterfall and I was confused when Lucas insisted we deviate from our plan that day to hike out to a private waterfall his friend had told him about. I agreed but was skeptical. After all.. we had never been to Iceland how did he know about this secret waterfall?
As we hiked out the weather started to turn and become very windy and rainy but he insisted we press on. We finally rounded a corner and saw a stunning waterfall surrounded by a lush, green landscape. He set up his camera to “take a picture” and then surprised me by proposing in front of the waterfall.
Lucas is a professional photographer and videographer and he got the whole proposal and our trip on video and made an amazing proposal video for us to announce our engagement. We had the most amazing vacation and I cannot wait to marry him!!
