How did you meet? We met at a bridal show! I was working the booth for VIP and he was the Food & Beverage Manager of the hotel that the bridal show was being held at. Throughout the show, he kept walking past our booth and I kept noticing he was looking at me. Finally, at the end of the show, he came over and introduced himself and the rest was history!
How did he propose? We went to Disney World for my 25th birthday. The morning of my birthday, he had this set up in the living room of the condo we were staying at. There was a single rose along with a glass slipper. When I turned around, he was down on one knee.
