Morgan and Nicolaus

How We Met: Nic and I met in 8th grade in our small hometown of Crescent City, California. We soon began our journey at the young age of 13, as our parents thought we were too young to start a relationship, we did not reconnect until our Junior prom. We instantly hit it off, as I had always known he was THE ONE for life. We have many things in common, especially our fire red hair and same birthday of July 18, 1994. Nic and I both moved to Sacramento for college and I was very busy with full-time school and being a Division 1 track athlete.

How He Asked: After 2 years on the team, I realized I was ready for something new and that included the discussion of marriage. Nic has always said he would marry me right out of high school, so he was excited to hear I was ready for this huge step. On April 4th, Nic and I went on a beautiful hike near Sacramento, that so reminded me of home. We had our pup with us and the weather couldn’t have been better! We stopped at a spot by the river and I was enjoying the view and I suddenly turned around to see Nic down on one knee.

He said a lot of sweet, well thought-out words and pulled out the most beautiful ring. I hold my ring very close to my heart, as my middle diamond belonged to my great grandma and is over 100 years old. The day could not have been more perfect! Since engagement, I have cherished every moment of calling him my fiance, as we prepare for the big day next summer. I could not be more blessed to enjoy the rest of my life with my true best friend and I cannot wait to call him my husband!
