Christy & Jake – Engaged – Va Tech campus – Blacksburg, Va

 Jake and Christy both grew up in Roanoke, Virginia. They attended the same middle and high school together, rode the same school bus, went to the same neighborhood pool, and swam on the same high school team. They ran in the same circles, but did not know much about each other. It was not until after college that one of their mutual friends re-introduced them both to each other while downtown one night in Roanoke. From there, things just seemed to fall into place…

 Christy and Jake were living 4 hours away from each other in different parts of Virginia. They traveled back and forth to see each other more times than they could ever count! As each visit came and went, their love for each other grew more and more. Finally, in 2013, Christy moved down to Blacksburg, Virginia to be closer to Jake while he started his PhD program. The vicinity made them understand more and more how much they wanted to spend their lives together.

 One night, after an amazing dinner out, Jake invited Christy to take the dogs on a walk to a pond area near their house to enjoy the super moon that happened to be out. While hanging out with the dogs, looking at the moon, and watching the fireflies, Christy noticed a golden ribbon attached to Sophie’s collar. As she reached down to see what it was, she saw Jake down on one knee and a beautiful ring sparkling in the moonlight. She had never seen Jake with that big of a smile on his face! It was already so late in the night by the time they got home but the remainder of the night was full of spreading the exciting news to their families and friends!
