Tyler and Blake
How We Met
Our love story began junior year in college. Blake and I knew each other from around campus. One night at an off campus house people called “downwind” we both showed up solo. We ended up talking the whole night about everything and anything. From then on neither of us looked at anyone else. A few months later we were officially dating. Every moment spent with Blake was full of laughter and smiles. He has a way of making even the worst day better. Post college we moved to South Carolina navigate the working world and continue the next steps of our journey together. I am so blessed to have such a wonderfully kind, handsome, and smart best friend.
How He Asked
We had been planning a trip to France for months and had finally arrived in Nice on May 1, 2017. That morning we explored Nice and headed to hike up the stairs to see the views from Castle Hill. The blue waters and views of the city were breathtaking. Blake led me through the crowds to a more private area to “check out the view”. He then started talking about our love, our adventures and our dreams for the future; my heart began to skip a beat. He got down on knee and said those four words “Will you marry me?”
After some happy tears, I said “yes” to a wonderful forever with my best friend. We spent the rest of the day celebrating together and sipping champagne. That evening we called all of our family and friends to share our excitement. I was completely overjoyed and filled with love. After a few days in Nice we headed to Paris to continue the trip of a lifetime. It was incredibly special to celebrate the beginning of the rest of our lives just the two of us.
