These high school sweethearts became friends their freshman year and by the time they were Juniors they were officially a couple.
“Never in my wildest dreams did I think Philip would propose to me in Rome, Italy in front of the breathtaking Trevi Fountain,” says Courtney, “but boy am I glad he did.” We arrived at this beautiful fountain, and I remember thinking to myself that I have never seen anything so gorgeous in my life.
As they walked down the steps, Courtney, coin in hand, closed her eyes, made a wish and threw it over her shoulder into the fountain. When she turned around from making her wish, Philip was down on one knee holding what Courtney describes as “the most beautiful ring with the biggest smile on his face.”
