Katelyn & Benjamin
Middle Grove, NY
We met in our senior year of high school. Ben asked Katie on a date in the middle of the hallway on the way to first period. We didn't actually have our first date until a couple of weeks later, but we've been together ever since!
Katie was down visiting Ben in North Carolina to help take care of him after he had ankle surgery. Just a couple days after the surgery, Ben said he wanted to take Katie to see a cool spot. Katie was under the impression that we were going to see a cool tree on the Marine base, Camp Lejeune, called the Bicentennial Tree. Once we were under it, Ben got down on one knee and proposed!
