with Jennifer and Micah….

Jennifer and Micah

Jennifer Yates & Micah McGee

Date Engaged


Where did you meet?

Micah and I met when we were 16! He was working at the local movie theatre. I went to a cast party at the movie theatre with another friend of mine who worked there. We saw each other and that was it! It turned out I was friends with one of Micah's best friends. Micah asked his friend about me and the next day he asked me on a date. Seven and a half years later here we are!

How did he propose?

Micah proposed to me on December 29th which is my birthday. The whole day was perfect, I woke up to breakfast in bed and a foot rub. After having lunch with family and friends Micah gave me my birthday presents.

He told me he had a dinner planned for just the two of us that night.

I got ready for dinner and we were off to the restaurant. We had dinner at McIntoshes Steakhouse and it was great. We left dinner and came back home, I thought for sure our day was over but when we got home he pulled out a bottle of champagne and told me I had one more present. He told me it was outside and he would go get it. When he came back in he said ok it is cold outside so you can go upstairs and see your present outside the window. He made me close my eyes and led me up all seventeen steps with my eyes closed. He took me into the upstairs bedroom and to the window. Then he said open your eyes, he uncovered my eyes and there on our front porch was "Will You Marry Me" spelled out and lit up in candles. I started crying and turned around and he was down on one knee!

When is your wedding date?

April 10, 2010

Why did you pick the area you are getting married in?

Micah and I came to Savannah for first time for a romantic getaway just before Christmas in 2007. I had just returned to the states after studying abroad in Europe. We had been in separate time zones and countries for too long! We fell in love with each other again and fell in love with Savannah as soon as we got there. It just made sense to get married there!

Where do you reside now?

Charlotte, North Carolina

Anything interesting or out of the ordinary you are including in your wedding day?  Micah's 9 year old sister will be my maid of honor :)
