Where did you meet?
In Orlando, Florida, where I was going to graduate school, he was in town for a conference. On St. Patrick's day we went out with a mutual friend and the rest is history! It was a really lucky St. Patty's day.
How did he propose?
We had talked about getting engaged after he had met my family. The day after he met them we stopped at a jewelry store together to look at rings. We both saw one that we loved and once I tried it on we knew it was the one. Once I had it on i said "We are not leaving here without it," and he said "Wrap it up then!" We left while they were sizing it and surprised my mom by bringing her back to pick it up with us.
When is your wedding date?

Why did you pick Savannah?
I loved the southern romance and charm of it. His family is from Georgia and mine from South Florida and Venezuela so we wanted an area in the middle. Savannah is so romantic we both loved the idea!
Anything interesting about the wedding day?
. We decided to go to a courthouse to get legally married the weekend we were in Savannah looking at venues because he was deploying two weeks after that. But we are having our beautiful ceremony and wedding with all of our friends and family on the two year anniversary of the courthouse wedding!!
Now that's a girl that knows what she wants! Can't wait to be a part of the big day for y'all!
