The Ring: We never went to look at rings because I wanted Justin to pick out something special on his own. My only suggestions were a very thin band, white gold, and a simple setting. From there the choice was his! I absolutely love what he picked and it feels extra special that he found a ring he knew I would love.

How We Met: Justin and I met almost 9 years ago. It was the summer before my junior year and his senior year of high school, and we were both headed to Business Camp for a week. The catch was, I was his camp counselor. We continued to stay in touch after camp and on October 11, 2008 we made it Facebook official!

Engagement Story: It was Valentine’s Day and Justin and I had just enjoyed an amazing dinner at Café Lurcat in downtown Minneapolis. After dinner, Justin asked if I wanted to go for a walk around St. Thomas’ St. Paul campus, where we both went to college. We used to take walks around campus all the time in school so I didn’t think it was too out of the ordinary. It was down by the river, overlooking the city of Minneapolis, that Justin asked me to marry him. Of course, I said yes!
