Devin and Conner

By  0 Comments

Date of Proposal: September 2, 2017

From kindergarten to adulthood, Devin Cothren and Conner Anderson shared a friendship that grew into something greater and much more romantic.

“My fiancé and I met when we were just five and six years old in our kindergarten classroom,” Devin smiles. “We knew each other throughout our elementary school years and reconnected in high school. We became great friends and started dating our junior year.”

Connor chose one of Devin’s well-loved places for his proposal on September 2, 2017. “He took me to the Monterey Bay Aquarium for my birthday,” Devin shares. The aquarium has always been one of my favorites because of the beautiful exhibits and the amazing science they facilitate. He proposed on the balcony of the aquarium overlooking the Monterey Bay.”

Devin and Conner have known each other for more than 16 years. “We grew up together and were able to watch each other grow from silly children to even sillier adults. I think we are so lucky to have been able to blossom together as we became the couple we are today.” 

The couple has chosen December 15, 2018, as their wedding day. “It’s important for us to convey an atmosphere of love and excitement. We want our family and friends to have fun and dance the night away,” they agree. “Our goals are to make sure our wedding is romantic and feels like a celebration of our two families coming together. 

“We chose a wedding date near the winter holidays so we can take advantage of all of the beautiful greenery and holiday joy,” Devin describes. “We plan to incorporate this through trading in the traditional wedding cake for a festive pumpkin spice cake, serving hot chocolate and spiced cider, and featuring fresh garland in our centerpieces and décor for the look and smell of the season.”
