How did you two meet?
I had been working at my new job for only a few weeks when one day some of my coworkers began to ask me about my personal life. I mentioned I was single, and my friend Riesa followed that with “I have a single guy friend!” Before I knew it, I was surrounded by 6 or 7 other co-workers who all knew Brian as he used to work in that department. I was leery about being setup, but they were all vouching for him. I agreed to let them give him my information and heard from him about 3 weeks later. We met for a late dinner downtown one Saturday night and the rest is history!
How did he propose?
It was a week before our one-year anniversary and he suggested we take a trip up to Chicago since it was a nice summer weekend. We got in late Friday so he recommended we just grab dinner and call it a night. The next morning, he woke me up at 7am and told me to get ready for the day but wouldn’t tell me anything else. I was excited for his surprise plans but little did I know what was about to come. Two hours later we drove up to the pier on Lake Michigan and he escorted me onto a chartered sailboat. Shortly thereafter he was down on one knee as we sailed along the Chicago skyline!
Who chose the ring?
We had been out looking at rings, and I always seemed to gravitate towards the sparkly halo rings. He went out some time later and looked at different diamond shapes. With the help of the consultant, he chose a beautifully cut round diamond and one of the halo rings I had loved.
We plan to have a modest-sized wedding in the summer of 2015. While he is from St. Louis, he has lived in Indy the last 7 years and is happy to have the wedding here. We are both only children coming from really small families, so our wedding will be filled with lots of friends. No venue yet, but we plan to start looking downtown in the near future.
