Date Engaged:

December 20th/21st (Midnight) at Fountain at Forsyth

Where did you meet?

We met on a field exercise for the Army during ROTC at Fort Custer Michigan, I was his squad leader for the weekend.

How did he propose?

We were at the fountain in Forsyth park, the cops tried to kick us out twice, and on the second time we actually got up to walk to the car, and that forced him to finally drop to a knee and ask me.

When is your wedding date?

July 11th 2009

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

We both live here in Savannah. My life was in CT, his was in MI, and we both went to different schools. This is the first place that we both live in the same town (we have never lived closer than an hour and half from each other) and we thought this was the perfect place to start a new life together that was totally both of ours.

Where do you reside now?

Savannah, Georgia

Anything interesting or out of the ordinary you are including in your wedding day? 

Colors are bright oranges, hot pink, and pops of green. Anything but a white wedding! The idea of the reception is to be a huge celebration.

Excellent tips! We've been looking for non-traditional, elegant but yet non-bank-breaking ideas for our reception. It seemed like we were doing way too much searching, reading and work to find a random gem ... until we stumbled upon your blog. We are now loaded up with several great ones from just a few short paragraphs. Thanks Holly K! Looking forward to next week.
