Taylor + Chad's story began in high school. Towards the end of their freshman year, they met each other on a church ski trip. They became close friends while taking a class together in their sophomore year. Chad had a crush on Taylor for months and eventually asked her out in April of their sophomore year. They dated all throughout high school and when it came time to go to separate colleges, they decided to continue their relationship. In that time, their relationship evolved and they began discussing the idea of a life together.
After graduating and getting jobs, they talked about marriage pretty seriously. In April of 2014, they decided to take a trip to New York.
On the day of their 8 year anniversary, April 8th, 2014, they took a romantic walk on the Brooklyn Bridge. While overlooking the Manhattan skyline, Chad handed Taylor a love letter. . .
Taylor knew what was about to happen! <3. After she finished reading the letter, with her heart racing, she looked down to see Chad down on one knee asking Taylor to be his wife.
