There are few things in life more wonderful than a theme party. And for Callie & Matt - that couldn't be more true. The pairs love story really began at a theme party, a President's Day theme party no less. The two had mutual friends and had circled around each other for awhile, but that party was where they really hit it off and their love story began.
In 2019, Matt was ready to make their love story official, so he purchased the ring and began planning the proposal. Anticipation started building for Matt as he prepared for a Summer 2020 proposal...but as luck would have it, a little world event threw a wrench in Matt's proposal plans.
"With the pandemic, his initial plan fell through and he made a few others that did too. Eventually, he decided to pop the question at the top of a big hike we did on our five-year anniversary in February of 2021."
It was a rainy, muddy day - as to be expected for a winter hike in the PNW, but right as they reached the top of their hike, some sunlight appeared and a beautiful view of the coastline emerged. Matt grabbed a nearby hiker and asked him to take their picture, and to both Callie and the photographer's surprise - he proposed!
