Lydia and Ben

How We Met

Ben and I met when we were in high school. He graduated a year before me, so his freshman year at Indiana University was our first of many long distance years. It wasn’t easy, but well worth it since I attended there the following year with him! IU gave us some of the best memories of our life, but after both of us graduated, it was time for most long distance. For the past 2 years I have attended Chiropractic school in Missouri, while he works in our hometown in Indiana. I am forever looking forward to the day I get to move back to Indiana with him!

How He Asked

Ben and I both attended Indiana University together after meeting in high school. We both love our alma mater, so it is always our favorite place to go on dates at! After nearly 8 years of dating, Ben finally popped the question in the most special way. After going to one of our favorite restaurants at Indiana University, we decided to take a walk through campus like we normally do while in town. I didn’t think the beautiful fall scene could have been any better, except that changed when we turned the corner and entered the Rose Well House in the middle of campus.

Inside were the letters spelling our “Marry Me” that Ben had hand painted, a bottle of champaign, rose petals sprinkled around, and a photographer to capture this incredibly special moment. The afternoon could not have been more perfect!
