Sammy and Hunter

Marriage Proposal Ideas in Indian Peaks Wilderness

How We Met

We met in college. I knew he was the one from the first times he took me on a date. We’ve lived in two different cities together but we had just moved to Denver about a month prior. We dropped everything we knew and moved across the country with virtually no plan.

How He Asked

The mountains were our love, so we knew we could flourish here together. We had a weekend getaway in a little mountain town with friends for which I thought was for my 26th birthday. Hunter got a cute Airbnb and we drank wine and played Monopoly all night. On Sunday morning, we got up to hike and set off on our adventure. With me recently moving to Colorado, my asthma and the altitude did not mix well. I was struggling to get up the mountain, while our friends and Hunter were encouraging me on. I had no idea what I was about to reach when I got to the top. When we got to the top at 12,000 feet, it was absolutely beautiful! It was definitely worth the struggle when Hunter got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of our lives together!

I was so shocked and surprised. Our friends who were with us were in on it and captured these amazing moments for us and our family couldn’t wait to hear from us! I felt like I was on top of the world. After I said YES we popped some champagne and had a picnic at the top of the mountain, admiring our beautiful new home and sharing our lives together forever.
