how they met...

They met online, both skeptical as to what the results could be for online dating, but hopeful to jump back into the dating pool and by chance meet someone who had similar views and values. Andy pursued Monica, and they messaged back and forth for a while about their favorite hobbies and interests before eventually deciding to meet over dinner and a Journey Tribute Concert.

the proposal...

Picturesque Alaskan peaks are the perfect place for adventurous couples to feel on top of the world (literally) as they declare their love for each other. Andy decided to propose to Monica doing just that at the Spencer Glacier Bench Cabin in late August 2019. To reach the cabin, both Andy and Monica had to catch a train to the remote Spencer Glacier Whistle Stop and hike 1,900' in elevation in Chugach National Forest. Andy had hid the engagement ring in his coat pocket the entire hike up the mountain. At the perfect moment, Andy proposed to Monica. She said yes! And they shared a bottle of waterfall-chilled champagne shortly after to celebrate!
