"Peter was in line behind me at a starbucks and noticed my cowboys lanyard. He's a giants fan and the rest was history. We have been together for 2 years before we were engaged. We got engaged at Glacier National Park, Montana. We went on the iceberg lake trial and he proposed at the end of the hike."

What colors did you choose for your overall theme?

"I loved the look of a vintage globe so I choose the colors: navy, sage & gold."
