Where did you meet?
We met in college at Florida State. A friend asked me to go with her to a fraternity rush party and I, reluctantly, went. After being at the check-in table for rushees a cute guy walked by and brought us some pizza. I remember thinking to myself that he was quite attractive. Later that night he ended up driving us to the after party at a local bar and we talked all night. We've been together ever since.
How did he propose?
He took me on a trip to Block Island, RI, where he worked a few summers in college. I'd always heard such fun stories and he wanted to take me for the 4th of July. The first day we got there (Friday) we went to lunch at a place he recommended for great fish and chips. After we went on a long walk to find this "spot" he had in mind. After about half an hour of walking I started saying that we should head back. He then mentioned that we should go check out the Salt Lake in the middle of the island. As we got there he told me to take some pictures because we always forget when we take vacations. Next thing I know, I'm turning around and he has a ring in his hand and is on bended knee. I was so surprised I just grabbed the ring and put it on and said, "Of course!"
When is your wedding date?
June 25, 2011
Why did you pick the area you are getting married in?
I've always been in love with the Savannah parks. The true Southern-ness of it all. I have always said I was going to get married there, since I was young. Also, the first time we said, "I love you" to each other was in Savannah!
Where do you reside now?
Washington, DC/Northern VA area
Anything interesting or out of the ordinary you are including in your wedding day?
We're probably going to have an ice cream bar instead of cake for dessert. Possibly including my dog Deuce (after some obedience!).
You two are sooo cute! We cannot wait for the big day!
