Blake asked Sarah to be his wife on March 23rd, 2017, while on a trip together in Orlando, Florida. They were at Magic Kingdom posing for a picture when Blake handed Sarah a pair of Mickey Mouse ears and told her to read the back. She flipped the hat over and it had written out in golden Disney font, “Sarah, will you marry me?” Of course she said YES! Sarah’s ring actually belonged to Blake’s mother, so it has both significance and beauty behind its sparkle. This sweet couple plans to get married in an evening wedding at the Kentucky Horse Park on May 12th, 2018, and I can’t wait to capture their joy as they promise forever to each other.
Now let's get to know this sweet couple a little better.
~Tell us how you met and describe your first impression.
Sarah: “I first met Blake in high school during Calculus class. My first impression was trying to figure out why this guy, who sat in front of me at the time, kept talking to me during class. As time went by, I realized how fun, smart, and positive Blake was as a person. I eventually found myself falling for my best friend.”
Blake: “I met Sarah in Calculus class. She was always laughing and smiling, and immediately caught my attention. As the year went on, I had not only made a best friend, but someone with whom I thought I could spend the rest of my life.”
~What is your favorite thing about your fiancé/fiancée?
Sarah: “My favorite thing about Blake, are his bear hugs. I always feel really loved when he hugs me and kisses me on the forehead during the quiet times in life. Blake is also so supportive with the dreams and goals that I have. He’s always cheering me on”
Blake: “Sarah always keeps me on my toes. Whether she is in a joking mood, or has somehow managed to hurt herself again, I never know what each day is going to bring with her. She is also an amazingly organized person, which she uses every day to try to help make things easier for me. She always tries to help me whether it be with school, work, or any other hobbies that I have. She is my best friend and my number one fan"
~What does a typical/ideal date night look like for the two of you?
Blake & Sarah: “Our typical date night is picking somewhere to grab a bite to eat and then doing something fun afterwards. It ranges from putt putt, video games, or even just kicking back and binge watching a TV series on Netflix.”
