Our Story

Since we are going to learn about your love story, we thought we’d share ours!

We met when we were college seniors. We both attended the same small private college and one would think that we would have crossed paths on campus some how…but we didn’t. One of our favorite bands was playing a show in Columbus and that’s where we first met. (To this day, it’s the best concert I’ve ever been to!!) It was mutual friends that got us to go to that concert and it was mutual friends that continued to connect us. With every run in, we found ourselves hanging out and getting to know each other and that eventually led to a first date. From that point on, we spent most of our senior year getting to know each other and going on dates and right before we graduated, we became official!

Chris was from Ohio and I was from Pennsylvania and after graduation we both moved back to our hometowns. We spent most of our dating relationship long distance and that distance never held us back! It’s true what they say; distance does make the heart grow fonder!! Within two years we had fallen in love and gotten engaged. I knew I had found “the one” during our dating relationship but I realized how lucky I was and how perfect he was the day he proposed! He had planned the most thoughtful and the most beautiful proposal of all time (well, at least in my eyes). It started with an amazing dinner and ended with a room full of candles and a scrapbook with a surprise proposal ending. It was better than I could have ever imagined. Of course, I said yes and the rest is history!! We got married that fall and that was the start of our great love story!! 

His proposal was actually featured on the scrapbooking company’s blog (how crazy is that!!). You can see the proposal scrapbook by clicking here: http://blog.mixbook.com/proposal-photo-book-idea/
