Shannon and Kody

How We Met

We’ve known each other since we were in elementary school. I had a crush on Kody for as long as I’ve known him, my mom even found notes in my old room not too long ago, praying that he would like me. We were best friends before he finally asked me to be his girlfriend right before our freshman year of high school started.

How He Asked

Kody and I have known each other almost our whole lives, we have been together since we were 14, and got engaged when we were 22. Kody planned the most perfect surprise, incorporating all of our loved ones. Kody’s family was set for family photos that day, he invited me to join in for a few. Little did I know he planned out a spot with our photographer to pop the question.

As we were getting some photos at that secluded spot, my parents walked up with Kody & I’s little dog, Boomer. Completely surprised, I bent down to find a ring box with wooden tags that said: “will you marry me?” I turned around to find Kody down on one knee. It could not have been more of a surprise or more perfect. The photographer got photos of the whole thing, which I will cherish forever. With the wedding scheduled for June 2018, we will have been together for 9 years before finally sealing the deal and I don’t think either of us could be more excited.
