Our Story

How We Met

Emily and Ryan met in 2015 through a mutual friend at college. From the first time meeting, Ryan left Emily with butterflies in her stomach. She asked him to hang out the very next day, and they realized how much they had in common and how well their values aligned. The two were inseparable since. They have balanced each other perfectly throughout the years, welcoming their new families and friends, traveling to all kinds of places together, creating a home, and of course adding their two pups to the mix.

The Proposal

Ryan knew for years that he wanted to propose to Emily in a hot air balloon. He got connected with a local pilot and planned it all out in secret. The weather seemed favorable for flying as they helped set up and inflate the balloon. All seemed according to plan until the wind started to pick up as they got ready for takeoff! What followed was two minutes of confusion and terror as they violently skipped across a field in the basket and eventually crashed. They were without injuries, but Ryan's plans were destroyed. By now, the jig was up (largely due to the obvious ring box bulging from Ryan's pants pocket). They talked over the near-death experience on the long drive home and decided they had waited long enough to finally be engaged. Ryan bent down on one knee the moment they got home, and of course Emily said yes. They never did take the pilot up on his offer for a second balloon attempt.
