Savannah and Ethan
How We Met
Ethan and I met in our very first class in college and started dating the next semester. He was my very first boyfriend and it didn’t take long for me to realize that I was absolutely in love with him and wanted to spend the rest of my life with. While the way we met may not have been excitement, the three years we have shared together certainly has. It has seen a blessing of a kidney transplant, the trials of a long distance relationship, thousands of miles in road trips, laughs, tears, and lots of love.
How He Asked
I went to England for the first time in my senior year of high school and could only dream of getting engaged there. Three years later I was chaperoning the same trip that I had gone on my senior year and we were starting our second day in London at Westminster Abbey. The trip’s photographer asked my mom and I (my mom leads the trip) to step forward to take a picture of us. She took a few pictures and the. My mom stepped back and as she did Ethan popped out from behind a tree! I was in complete shock!
He had flown thousands of mikes to give me my dream proposal. After I got over the shock and finally stopped hugging him and touching his face to make sure he was real and that this was happening, he got down on one knee and asked me the question I had been dreaming of hearing my whole life!
He slipped the most beautiful ring on my finger (best souvenir ever) and then I got to spend the trip showing the man I fell in love with the city I had fallen in love with.
