Sara and Grant's Engagement in Disney World (Animal Kingdom)

How We Met

Grant and I went to high school together and hung out in the same friend group. One night at a friends’ party we started talking and really connected. We started spending more and more time together and the rest is history! We started officially dating our senior year in high school. I honestly can’t imagine my life without him in it! He’s my best friends and truly my soul mate.

How He Asked

Grant and I have always been obsessed with Disney World. Our first trip there together was a few years ago and we were hooked. Last year we decided to get annual passes for Disney world so we could go a few times this year. I’ve always told Grant how much I would love to have a magical purposely at Disney and he always came up with some excuse why it wouldn’t work out. This past April we planned a trip for just the two of us to head out to Orlando. I didn’t think anything of it because Grant told me not to expect anything. On our first full day at the parks, we wrap our day up at Animal Kingdom (which is my favorite park). We were having the best day just the two of us! Grant told me he wanted to go take some pictures near my favorite ride (Expedition Everest). I agreed and posed for the picture. After about two or three normal photos, I look next to me and Grant is down on one knee with a ring box in his hand. He asked with the absolute biggest grin on his face, “Will you marry me?”

Tears immediately started pouring from my eyes and I yelled, “YES!” It was honestly the most magical and thrilling moment of my entire life. After nearly ten years together I get to finally call my best friend my fiancé and I could not be more thrilled.
