Caitlin and Kyle met in 1999 during their 6th grade year– when the three elementary schools in Pullman merged together for middle school. On Valentine’s Day of their 8th grade year, Kyle asked Caitlin to be his girlfriend with a bouquet of Dissmores roses and a white teddy bear. And the rest, they say, is history.
In February 2016, Kyle planned a weekend at her parent’s cabin on Coeur D’Alene lake, skiing with their friends from the Tri-Cities. On Friday evening as they were in route to the cabin, Caitlin received a message from their friends saying that they were not going to be able to make it to the cabin as a work obligation arose unexpectedly. Caitlin and Kyle decided to continue on to the cabin and make the best of the weekend. Kyle surprised Caitlin by proposing to her on their dock after a waffle breakfast and a walk in the rain with their dogs. Their friends who were supposed to be skiing with with them and helped plan the surprise arrived early afternoon to celebrate.
