  •  
  • Engagement Story:Originally Steve was going to propose on the beach in Florida the week after Easter, After thinking a lot about this, Steve changed his mind the Wednesday before Easter Sunday. I woke up Easter morning to a basket with eggs and a shirt. I almost got mad because we usually talk about this because he has a 4 year old. I didn't make him a basket. His Daughter Ava looked at him and Said "Daddy, why didn't the Easter bunny bring you a basket?" (This is why we always try to stay on the same page. ) He covered for me and said he already opened his basket. He started videoing me opening my basket and I still had NO idea what was coming. I opened everything and left the big egg for last. After opening I found the beautiful box and knew right away it was happening. I found an amazing ring, the video he took shows me trying not to cry. I then got to spend Easter with my families and show them all before leaving for Florida, it worked out great!

  • Date Engaged: 3-23-12
  • Wedding Date: 11-2-13
  • How Did You Meet:At a Friends Christmas Party (Tina and Chris). Tina and I used to work together about 10 years ago and lost touch once we finished college. We reconnected on Facebook in late 2009 and she invited me to come to her home for her annual Christmas party. Mike and Tina grew up together; they lived a few houses apart. Mikes parents are Tina’s godparents and Tina’s parents are Mike’s godparents. Tina’s parents also introduced Mike’s parents :) I sent Mike a message on Facebook asking him to go out for drinks. Our first date was at Growler’s Pub, July 13, 2010 and from that day on we were inseparable.
  • Engagement Story: We had a trip to Punta Cana set for March 24, 2012. I thought Mike would pop the question there, and he knew I was thinking that so he surprised me before the trip. The night before we were to leave, March 23, 2013, we planned on meeting Tina and Chris at Brazie’s on the Hill for dinner and some drinks. Side note: Mike and I have been rehabbing a home. At that point things were still pretty rough. We had just moved the chimney outside and had a wood-burning fireplace put in. We were getting ready to leave our apartment to meet Tina and Chris when Mike said, “let’s stop by the house first, you have to see the fireplace!” We walked in and the place was spotless (well as spotless as a rehab home can be). Mike brought his iPad in and turned on a crackling fire app he downloaded and placed it inside the fireplace and said “look babe it’s our first fire!”- then he got down on one knee and proposed!! I was in complete shock, then he surprised me again, he walked me around the corner to where our dinning room will one day be and had a table set up with candles, Perrier Jouët Fleur De Champagne and crystal champagne flutes engraved with our engagement date, with room to have our wedding date added. He also had me open a gift he made. A custom framed picture of us, my ring and our engagement date- it was beautiful! When I realized we were suppose to be going to Brazie’s, I asked him, “Are we really meeting Tina and Chris?” he said “yes, but not until later” I was so excited to get there and tell Tina! We walked into the restaurant and they walked us to the back room where Mike had yet another surprise… Our families and of course Chris and Tina lol were all there! : ) But Mike surprised all of them too! They all thought they were just there to have drinks and see us before we left the country, but instead was there to announce our engagement! It was the perfect day! I have the most amazing future husband!

    • How Did You Meet:We have gone to church together for 10 years, but we have been acquaintances for about 8 years and became friends 2.5 years ago when he joined my small group at church. Friends kept telling us we should be together, but we thought they were crazy. The Lord changed my heart and a year later, changed his.
    • Engagement Story: He asked me to meet him in the church parking lot for dinner but asked me to go inside for a minute. He led me into the sanctuary where it was dark. I saw our sound guy there and a little table and a chair decorated with a chair cover and lights. He led me up to the table and chair and had me sit down. He told me that this was my dinner for the night. He had a White Castle burger, a goblet of Coke, a heart-shape bowl full of Twizzlers, and a bowl of candy-coated sunflower seeds - all some of my favorites. I asked him if he was going to eat with me, and he said "No." I asked him to pray with me before I ate, so he knelt down and prayed. He then walked up on stage and picked up a guitar. He played the most beautiful song I've ever heard and sang it beautifully. I couldn't eat anymore because I was crying. About 3/4 through the song, 4 of his friends, who used to be on the worship team, joined him for a full band. They played 2 more worship songs, and then Jesse came down and got down on one knee. He gave me an envelope and asked me to read the poem inside. While I read the poem he wrote for me that talked about our story and glorifying God through our relationship, he took out at bowl of water, a washcloth, and a towel and washed my feet like Jesus washed the disciples' feet. When I was done reading the last line, he asked me , "Will you marry me?" (which rhymed with the last line of the poem). I said "of course," and hugged him...
