How We Met

January 2014

We were both studying Sport and Recreation Management at James Madison University back in 2014 and had classes together five days a week. About two weeks into spring semester, I had to find out who this hunk was. I knew Taylor was on the Dukes baseball team, so I reached out to a friend on the team to set me up. Next thing I knew, Taylor was sitting next to me in class and he introduced himself. I was smitten and determined to make him my boyfriend. The rest is history!

The Proposal

December 17, 2021

I had just finished a three day trip where my crew members asked me multiple times, "Are you sure he isn't proposing?" when I told them that Taylor and I had plans to do the Christmas Tour at the Biltmore Mansion to which I responded, "No, we'll wait until after we get settled into our house." Taylor picked me up from the CLT Airport and drove us to Asheville, NC. Once we arrived, he suggested we walk to the decorated tree to get a view of the mansion before the tour. I mentioned to him, "It would be so cute to see a proposal out here." Little did I know...... We approach a photographer that Taylor introduced himself to and I insisted we not bother this professional photographer - tripod and everything. We start photographs and Taylor takes my hands and gets down on one knee. I could not believe it was finally our time. I can't wait to spend forever with you, Tay.
