Zach is originally from Ocean City, NJ and Caitlin is from Princess Anne, MD. Zach and Caitlin met while studying at Salisbury University in Salisbury, MD. Zach was studying psychology and Caitlin was studying nursing when they met through a mutual friend and the romance began! Caitlin finished nursing school and worked in Maryland for a brief time before permanently relocating to New Jersey. After Caitlin's first year in New Jersey they decided to take their first international trip together and backpack in Peru. On their last day in Peru, they hiked Machu Picchu (one of the New Seven Wonders of the World). After climbing the peak they started the long hike down. When they finally reached the bottom, Zach asked Caitlin to stop for one more picture. It had started to rain and they had spent the entire day hiking. Caitlin was ready to go and asked if they could just leave. Zach asked again for one more picture, and Caitlin reluctantly agreed. Caitlin stared out at the breathtaking surroundings while Zach wandered off to ask a passerby to take their picture. When Caitlin turned around for the picture, Zach was on one knee and a large group of tourists had all stopped to watch and film the spectacle. Caitlin never saw it coming! Right there at Machu Picchu in one of the most beautiful places in the world she agreed to forever with Zach!
