Brodie and I absolutely LOVE this couple. I've known Chloe since 2015 when she came to serve at Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters as a high schooler. When we met Nick just last year, it was almost like we had known them as a couple their whole life! Nick and Chloe's love for the Lord totally defines their relationship, and it's been so cool to be a part of this season with them. Check out Chloe's version of how Nick TOTALLY surprised her!
On Sunday, July 8th I headed to church with my family thinking it would be just like any old Sunday. I live in NC and my family lives in FL and they were in town to visit while I was off work for the weekend.
The plan following church was for Nick, my family, and I to have dinner at a friend’s. Before both vehicles could leave church, Nick called me and said that we needed to kill some time so that our friend could finish cooking. He suggested a park in town with a nice mountain view and said that we could take some pictures.
When we got there, we headed out into the field--and it was gorgeous! The sun was just getting ready to set over the mountains. We took some photos on our iPhones and hung out for a bit. I was completely clueless about what was happening the whole time, but I did comment on seeing more planes that normal pass over the field; little did I know it was actually one plane and it was circling the field, ready to take part in Nick’s proposal!
After a few minutes, the plane came across the field and dropped a box attached to a parachute. The plan was for the box to land right near us but it ended up falling behind the tree line on the edge of the field. It worked out perfectly considering the box was a decoy to distract me and, after looking at the box confused, trying to figure out whose it was and why they dropped it here, I turned around to find Nick holding the most gorgeous ring (that he designed himself!).
That’s when he got down on a knee and asked me the question I had been waiting to answer for so long! I was shocked, in love, and so incredibly happy. I get to marry the love of my life! Following the proposal, we headed to the airport where we were able to meet up with all of our friends who came together to pull off Nick’s plan!
