How did you two meet?

We met through work when we were completing the same student program! We didn’t interact much, but I would always take the opportunity to go to post-work events to get closer to him. Eventually, we started taking weekend trips together, and the friendship moved to marriage! We still work at the same place we interned and are very much enjoying our time together during lunch dates.

The Proposal

One random Thursday, I got a text from my sister, asking to go to a karaoke bar that night. Once Jimmy and I got home, got ready and left the house, he took  a “wrong turn” and took me instead to the gazebo on the lake in our neighborhood. It had been decorated with lights and pictures, where he then popped the question!

Favorite Wedding Moment

My favorite moment was during bridal party pictures, where we attempted a dip. Jimmy proceeded to lean a bit too far forward and actually dropped me! Everyone started rushing to help, but my mom proceeded to yell at my photographer to “keep taking pictures” instead of helping. She and Jimmy were so worried about if I was mad, but I’ve never laughed harder! When we got those pictures back, they made me laugh as much as when the moment happened because I could see everyone’s reactions, too.

Favorite Wedding Details

Jewelry has always been something special to me and my family. My earrings were borrowed from my grandmother, who got them from her mother, and my bracelet was a graduation gift made from gold and small diamonds from my great-grandmother’s engagement ring.
