Our Relationship

We met in 2017, while rock climbing at Seattle Bouldering Project. We hit it off immediately, bonding over our love of food and desire to travel. We had a magical time traveling in our first year together, and we both knew it was time. We were engaged in April 2018, adopted our little Desna in November and now we're getting married!
