Where did you meet?
We met in Hartford, CT. We were set up on a blind date by his old roommate and my neighbor. Since Chris travels a lot for work and hadn't gone on a date in a while, I was asked to be a "guinea pig" for him. As for Chris, he found out about the date about two hours beforehand.
How did he propose?
We were visiting his parents, who live in Savannah, over the holidays and we went ring shopping to get an idea of what we both liked. As Chris puts it, I wouldn't stop talking about all the pretty rings we saw so he decided he would start teasing me about it! The whole second half of the trip, he kept playing around until one night we went on a walk in the square. He teased me saying, "I'm going to propose to you right now." This time he meant it because he hopped down on both knees and popped the question. After the reply of "You're kidding me," he finally got the yes he was looking for.
When is your wedding date?April 26, 2014
Why did you pick the area you are getting married in?
We are to be getting married in the same square where he proposed.
Where do you reside now?
We just moved to Savannah, GA this summer.
Anything interesting or out of the ordinary you are including in your wedding day?
What started off as a "destination wedding" for us has now turned into a hometown wedding...since we are super proud to show off our new city to our family and friends, we plan on doing a mini-trolley tour of the city for our guests.
Looks like that was one successful blind date! We can't wait for your big day in the best city in the South :)
