Krastel told NBC News that the moment was perfect. “That’s why it was always in the back of my mind to get engaged during storm chasing. I felt like it would be this perfect way to seal the deal.”

Coincidently, their love of storm chasing also brought them together. Scott also has an interest in storms, and initially met Krastel by following his Instagram account. He messaged Krastel, "Hey, do you actually chase tornadoes?" and the rest is history.

The two weren't 100% in the clear when the picture was taken. They had to rush to the car as the tornado was moving closer. Krastel went on to tell NBC News, "I called to my friends to get back in the car. I was just so emotional just because it was my happiest place, being with him next to the storms."
