Where did you meet?
We’ve known each other for years and have many mutual friends. A friend made the connection for us after a brunch at my house.
Please describe the proposal.
I gave her a circle style diamond pendent and told her it reminded me of our relationship. I commented on the unbreakable quality of a circle while showing her the finished gold side. Then I told her it gets better the more you examine it and I flipped it over to the diamond side. As I put it on her, I pulled the ring out of my pocket and got down on one knee and said, “That’s why I’d like to ask you “Will you marry me?”.
What was the first thing you did after you got engaged?
We went to the small town near Longwood and shopped the little boutiques then had dinner with friends.
Have you picked a date? Venue? Theme?
Yes. September 19th at the Cylburn Arboretum. The theme is.... more flowers.
What is something you and your fiancé like to do together?
We really enjoy our nights in with a good movie, interesting food and a nice bottle of wine We also like to travel and, shortly after our engagement, we went to Barcelona for a week to check out the food and the architecture of Antoni Gaudi.
Will you be taking a honeymoon? If so, where and why did you pick that destination?
We’ll take a 1-week honeymoon in Aruba. It’s beautiful, relatively close and not prone to hurricanes.
What is a fun fact about you as a couple?
Our engagement date is a palindrome number (not planned just happened).
