Sarah and Christian

How We Met

Christian and I have been friends for 7 years but only started dating a little over a year ago. Christian say’s he noticed me in 7th grade, but we didn’t become friends until senior year of high school. And didn’t date until we were both out of college.

How He Asked

Christian is a planner and never misses the little details that come with events, which certainly keeps me on my toes. This proposal was no different. Christian planned for us to go on a picnic out at my grandma’s property. When we arrived, he walked me down to the pond’s dock and there I noticed a boat with a beautiful array of flowers – very much a “Notebook” kind of boat. From there I knew something special was going to happen. When we got into the boat he rowed me out into the middle of the pond, asked me if I could stand, (me having a legitimate fear I may fall in) cautiously said “I’ll try”, following with him getting down on one knee.

Let me tell you, when you imagine this moment, you never think you will be proposed to on a row boat in the middle of Grandma’s pond, but it was perfect! After this, we rowed back to the dock and were greeted by many family and friends! We feel so loved and supported as we start this new journey together!
