Jenny Pope & Chris Donaghe
New Year's Eve 2011-2012
Where did you meet?
We actually went to high school together, but all we knew about each other then were our names. We re-met in college through mutual friends; he went to Georgia Southern, and I went to UGA. We were pretty much hooked since then!
How did he propose?
We went out with our friends to a New Year's Eve event in Atlanta, GA. We counted down to the new year, kissed, and then Chris got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! It was pretty much right in the middle of a big crowd, so we got a lot of applause.
When is your wedding date?
November 24, 2012
Why did you pick the area you are getting married in?
We are both from Hinesville, GA, which is about 45 minutes outside of Savannah. We've moved around quite a bit in the past, but we always call Savannah home. Besides, it's an absolutely beautiful location for a wedding! And a good number of guests are coming from out of town, so we wanted to have it somewhere everyone would enjoy.
Where do you reside now?
Chris is in the Army, and we just got sent to San Antonio, TX.
Anything interesting or out of the ordinary you are including in your wedding day?
We are going to have my dad make a box for us to put a bottle of wine and two letters into to. You're supposed to open the box when you have an argument, drink the wine, and read the letters to remind each other why you love each other so much. Perfect argument ender! Maybe we'll make more than one! Haha
Anything else you would like to add?
It's been a long planning process, and we are SO excited for our day!
We are thrilled that the big day is coming right up. What a fabulous way to spend the holiday--celebrating with you two! Thank you both for your service to our country.
