We met for the first time while we were both attending freshman camp before the start of high school. A few hours later Ben made the jump to find me on Instagram where he asked me for my phone number. After a few days of talking non stop, he asked me to be his girlfriend over Snapchat. A very Gen Z relationship, but hey, it worked!
While on a family vacation in the Outer Banks, we got all dressed up to take (what I thought) were Christmas card pictures. We posed for a picture of the two of us when my brother asked me to come look at the pictures on his camera. As I began to walk towards the camera, my brother started backing up, I turned back around to look at Ben to find him on one knee. It was the best day and was so happy to be surrounded by some of our best people. Props off to Ben and the rest of my family for being able to pull off the best surprise of my life!!
