How We Met
Our story begins on Drexel's campus in 2014 where we met through mutual friends and ROTC. After Chris' transfer to Penn State and Laurel getting stationed in El Paso, our dates changed to weekend trips, online video gaming, and late night phone calls. When Laurel moved to Germany, we got the opportunity to travel Europe together.
On one of our trips in Europe to Zermatt, Switzerland, Chris managed to find a ring small enough to fit Laurel's finger and atop the ski mountain with a view of the Matterhorn, Chris proposed. Although we had to wait 2+ years until Laurel returned to the US to get married, it is finally happening!
