How We Met:We sat across from each other at a mutual friend’s birthday dinner. That Saturday we met up at Slice Fest and have been attached at the hip since.
The Proposal: Billy and I were vacationing in Telluride, Colorado, and decided to backpack for the night up to Ice Lake, which has an elevation gain of over the height of the Empire State Building. Once we got to the top, we set up camp and relaxed at the lake. Before we knew it a hailstorm came in, and we took cover in our tent. After the storm passed, we walked back out to the lake. I usually walk faster than Billy so I didn’t take much notice of him trailing behind me. Right before we got to the lake, he said my name, and I turned around to him on one knee. Billy is not one for a lot of attention, so I should have known he would have proposed miles and miles away from anyone or cell service.
Favorite Moment: One of my favorite moments was the first look. His genuine expression of surprise to see me all dressed up made me feel very pretty. Another great moment was walking down the aisle with Billy. We had just said our vows and we were able to really see everyone in the church. It was pure happiness.
Favorite Details: We gave out large foam hats on the dance floor. They were super fun and goofy, kind of like us. Everyone enjoyed taking pictures and passing them around. People still bring them up months after our wedding.
What We Are Doing Now: We currently live in Crestline Park with our adorable French bulldog, Charlie.
