For Utah couple Shona and Tanner, all it took was a Friend Request on Facebook. She sent him a quick DM and that was all she wrote.

“We had gone to the same high school and were friends on Facebook. He was a senior while I was a freshman,” Shona says, “ I just said ‘hi’ and put it out there. We started chatting back and forth and went out for hot chocolate the very next day.”

 

 

“He proposed on New Years Eve, which is also my birthday,” she says. “We went to Kneaders to get the french toast; he was getting a lot of phone calls, so I knew something was going on.”

 


 

“It was December and snowing outside. After breakfast, we drove up to Mueller Park in Bountiful where he had a whole set-up in the middle of a grove of trees. There were pictures of us on our first dates strung up and a tree-lined pathway covered with roses. He got down on one knee in the freezing snow and he just proposed right there,” she says. “I said, yes, it’s about time!”
