Taylor and Mark

How We Met

Mark and I were both servers at Olive Garden, where we met in the summer of 2013. We didn’t talk that much until the end of the year at our work holiday party. On New Year’s Eve, a bunch of people from Olive Garden, as well as my group of friends went to a bar. Shortly after midnight, Mark and I caught each other’s eye, he bought me a drink and we danced the night away. We just hit it off!

How He Asked

imageMark and I wanted to take a trip to NYC. He decided it would be cool if we went skydiving before we went on our trip. We woke up early on September 16th, 2015 to drive to Pine Hill Airport in Albion, NY. I was so nervous and he kept reassuring me that I was going to love it. Mark jumped first, then me. As I descended, I saw a big sign on the ground he had made that said “Will you marry me?” He stood waiting for me, while his parents, my grandpa and best friend stood off to the side. He got down on one knee and proposed! It was so special, unique and the perfect moment!
