How did you meet? Tell us your story.
I worked at a bar in downtown Columbus where Aaron’s band, Introspect, would occasionally play. We were acquaintances for nearly 2 years before we started dating. Love happened fast because it felt like years in the making. We went on a weeks vacation together after just 3 weeks of dating!
Tell us about proposal:
We dated for almost 2 ½ years before we were engaged. Aaron proposed on a trip to Las Vegas in March 2012. He surprised me on the second morning with a helicopter ride to the Grand Canyon. Once the helicopter landed in the Canyon, we walked over to a cliff that overlooked the River. He got down on one knee right there and asked me to marry him. I don’t think either of us remembers exactly what was said, but just that we both felt on top of the world! We were filled with so much love and surrounded by so much natural beauty, it was breath- taking. That evening, we enjoyed the amazing sights and sounds of Beatles LOVE, the perfect finish to a love- filled day.
What is your favorite part about the proposal?
Morgan: The helicopter ride, the Grand Canyon, the RING….everything was so overwhelming and amazing! But by far the best part, and I know how cliche this sounds, was knowing I was going to get to spend the rest of my life with such an amazing person. I just felt such a sense of peace and excitement all at the same time.
Aaron: My favorite part of the proposal was the fact that I got to surprise her multiple times on our engagement day with different things – A limo ride, A helicopter ride, the Grand Canyon, and obviously the ring. But more than anything, proposing in such beautiful place on such a beautiful day is a once in a lifetime experience.
Essentially, having one of the best days of your life in one of the most majestic places on earth – you can’t ask for more.
What do you love most about each other?
Morgan: What do I love most about Aaron? Wow, this is going to be hard to condense down into a few sentences… I love the mental, emotional and physical connection we have most of all. We just understand each other, our sense of humor and outlook on life match up perfectly, he makes my life so full and fun. He makes me feel beautiful in every way a person could. Literally every single morning since we have been together, he tells me I’m beautiful, even when he’s half asleep. It just makes me melt.
