In their own words
Q: How did you meet?
A: On a double date.
Q: When did you know your fiance was “the one”?
A: On our first date.
Q: Tell us about the proposal.
A: My fiance wrote me three notes, each telling me which path of rose petals to take to a specific room in our house. When I got to each room, there was another note. Finally, I followed the freshly picked rose petals to the dining room, where I found him down on one knee. Then, he asked me to marry him. It was a magical moment in both of our lives.
