Sara & Erik – A walk to remember!

Congratulations Sara & Erik! Erik knew Sara was expecting a proposal, so he had to work a little harder to surprise her. He proposed at one of their favorite spots to walk together. 

How They Met: We met online, and had our first date at the Toasted Owl (I like to call it the Crusted Squirrel) in Northampton, MA. One of our first dates was going to a movie in West Springfield, but with both of us enjoying a good laugh, we had to make it a little more interesting. We met at Savers (local thrift store) with the agreement that we could each pick the other’s outfit for the movie. I ended wearing a circa 1970 yellow plaid vest, while she wore a florescent purple blouse with massive shoulder pads. We were the oddest looking couple in the movies, but never stopped laughing.¬†Four years later, we still haven’t stopped laughing together.

How He Asked:

At the Westville Dam in Sturbridge, MA. 

We moved in together in Sturbridge, MA a few years ago. Both of us like to take walks, and this was a perfect spot to go for a quick mile walk. The Westville Dam is one of our favorite spots in Sturbridge.
I asked her during a walk around the Westville Dam in Sturbridge the night before we were schedule to travel to Chicago to run the marathon. I knew that she believed I was going to ask her during our vacation. Knowing that, I wanted to find a time and place that would completely take her by surprise. I asked her mid-walk around the dam to her complete shock. We were then able to celebrate the engagement for the next week, culminating in a great run that Sunday at the race.

She wanted to stay classic with the ring. I ended up choosing a beautiful round single solitaire for her ring.

We will definitely be coming back for the wedding bands.

Thank you Sara & Erik for sharing your beautiful story with us!
