McKenna and Taylor
How We Met
Taylor and I met at a middle school summer camp on the beach. Our first time seeing each other was on the beach by a really huge rock. He jumped out from behind a rock and tried to scare me. After getting to know each other that whole day, that night I wrote in my journal “I think I just met the guy I am going to marry.” I can’t explain how I knew, I just did. I think the most beautiful and precious moments in life are unexplainable. We were only in 7th grade and quickly grew to be best friends. My dad had a rule that I wasn’t allowed to officially date someone until I was 16 years old so we waited until the day after my 16th birthday and have been in love ever since!
How He Asked
I am a photographer so I thought I was going on a shoot on the beach. I called my client and asked him where he would like to meet me and he told me by the big rock in the sand. I walked over to it with all my gear in hand, and instead of seeing my client, I saw Taylor on top of the rock! He walked me up that same rock that we first met in middle school at to a place over looking the ocean. There was a blanket, flowers, pictures of us and candles. We went though all the pictures and talked about the past 7 years of memories. Then he got down on one knee and asked me to be his best friend forever. It was the easiest yes I have ever said!
