How We Met

Childhood sweethearts

We met 14 years ago when Carl's family moved from Cincinnati to Goshen. Carl's eldest sister quickly become one of my best friends! Even though he made sure I knew his feelings for me. I hid my feelings for Carl in fear it would affect my relationship with his sister until she gave me the all clear 5 years ago. From the moment we had each other we knew there would be no one else for us. We knew we'd spend the rest of our lives together! We just didn't know how beautiful it would be! We would like to thank all of our family and friends that helped us reach this amazing milestone!

The Proposal


After a long day of working we had errands to run with my mom before we were supposed to go to carl's sisters to “hang out.” But by the time we were finished it was 7:30 pm and I was exhausted. I told him I just wanted to go home to rest and we can visit another day not knowing what he had planned. He decided he did not want to wait another minute! So before leaving my parent house to head home he called me out to the front porch where he was on one knee asking me to marry him! Even though it did not go how he planned it was beautiful. The best part was he made sure to capture that moment on the ring door bell camera!
