Shelby and Derek
How We Met:
I met Derek when I was 16 years old at a high school football game. It was Sophmore year and my school was playing his school for the Homecomming football game. He saw a friend of mine that he knew from soccer. After months of building a friendship I asked him to my high school Junior Prom. We fell in love as young high schoolers. He transferred our senior year to my high school, the rest is history!
How He Asked:
Our last day at a summer conference in Manitou Springs, CO he planned an entire day for us including a professional photo shoot. He knows how much I love pictures and capturing every moment so I didn’t think much of it when he told me we were taking pictures that day! I thought to myself “wow he knows me so well” in the middle of the photo shoot he gets down on one knee and I honestly wish I remembered what he said but I burst out in tears I don’t even think I could fully hear him. I never thought I would be so lucky to say I’m marrying my best friend and high school sweetheart, but I am and I couldn’t be more excited!
