Katie and Bronson met the summer of 2011 working together as lifeguards. We initially bonded over our shared love of The Office, but that led us to talking about anything and everything as we worked early morning shifts at the pool together. Over the years, we quickly became best friends who shared many things together: movies, hiking, rock climbing, etc. We finally began dating in November of 2014, and we've been happy ever since!
In April of 2017, Bronson hatched a plan to take Katie hiking for her birthday weekend at one of their favorite places, Red River Gorge. We picked our favorite hike, Indian Staircase, but we got lost on the way there and settled on another trail. After a couple hours we decided to turn around and we were able to find the right spot! We hiked halfway up the staircase and we sat to watch the sunset. It was the first place that Bronson realized he fell in love with Katie, so he pulled her to her feet, got down on one knee and asked her to marry him!
