Madeline and Kolten
How We Met
Kolten and I were friends for a few years before we decided to make our relationship official in 2016, but once we did, we knew we had a “forever” kind of thing. We knew very quickly into our relationship that we wanted to spend our lives together.
How He Asked
Kolten is a football coach at West Middlesex High School, where we both graduated in 2007 and 2010. September 21, 2018, was not only West Middlesex’s homecoming game, but it was also Kolten’s 30th birthday, so I had been so preoccupied with planning a birthday party with all his friends and family for after the game, that I had no idea what was coming next… After taking our traditional post-game picture following a 33-0 win, Kolten dropped down on one knee in front of our friends and family right on the field.
I have never been so surprised! It was so special for my family to have been invited to the proposal. The best part, celebrating with all of our friends and family at his birthday party just a few minutes later. Who knew I was planning our engagement party the whole time?
