Where did you meet?
We met through mutual friends.
How did he propose?
He actually proposed on his birthday. We went to dinner to celebrate and after dinner we walked downtown. The night was young but I thought we were just going home to relax. But when we got home, without me knowing anything he had someone set up a fire in the fire pit in the back yard. The setting couldn't have been any more perfect--the moon was full, there were candles everywhere, music was playing, the wine was chilling with two wine glasses on patio with my favorite appetizers. I thought "Wow, this is a great way to celebrate his birthday." The night was young so we danced under the full moon, talked, laughed, he open wine and we toasted to his birthday. He told me he had to go in the house for a minute and he would be right back. I sat under the full moon sipping my wine and listening to the music. He came out walked up to my chair and knelt down in front of me, but I STILL did not realize what was about to take place. I thought he just wanted a kiss. (ha ha) He took my hand and began to tell me all the things he loved about me. I began to cry, still unaware of what was going on, he pulled out a box opened it and said "These are the reasons why you should be wearing this." He put they ring on my finger and kissed me. He never actually spoke the words "Will you marry me?" but honestly, no words were needed........we just got up and danced under the full moon.
When is your wedding date?
November 10, 2012
One year to the date that we got engaged on his birthday. I ask him later that night why he gave me a present on his birthday and he said, " I wanted to give it to you when you least expected it and anyway you are the greatest gift I have ever received."
Why did you pick the area you are getting married in?
We picked Savannah for its Southern Style and History. We wanted a southern wedding and what better place than Savannah........
Where do you reside now?
We currently live in Sandersville, Georgia
You guys are just the best! We have really loved planning with you thus far and cannot wait for the big day. You both deserve the most amazing wedding and we are making sure that is exactly what you get!
