 karba4How did you meet?

We met while in college at Bloomsburg University. It wasn’t until nearly 5 years later when I finally gave in (after many attempts on Steve’s part) to grab a drink at a local bar one Friday night. To my surprise Steve swept me off her my almost immediately. It didn’t take long for both of us to realize we were meant to spend the rest of their lives together.

How he proposed?

Steve’s parents were visiting from Florida and we were out celebrating one of their last nights in town. We met both sets of our parents at the Apollo Grille, a restaurant that holds a special place in our hearts, where we all shared a great meal, drinks, and many laughs. As dessert came out mine was the last one to be served. When I looked down, “Will You…..” was written in chocolate syrup on a marble slab along side my dessert. When I finally looked down and realized why everyone was staring at me, I looked to Steve who was on one knee asking if I would marry him! The entire restaurant congratulated us joined us in celebrating the amazing night. karba2

Advice for future brides and grooms?

Enjoy. every. second. The engagement, planning, and wedding day go so incredibly fast  – take some time to enjoy what is going on, even in the most stressful time. It is the most exciting time in your life and it gets very hectic trying to put together the wedding of your dreams. When everything falls into place on your special day, take a moment to yourselves and realize that this isn’t the end of the wedding, but the beginning of your lives together.
