Engagement story from the bride-to-be:

He proposed to me after the perfect dinner on NYE in 2013. He asked me about my goals for the New Year in a post-dinner conversation and the ring was brought out with dessert! Everyone in the restaurant cheered and we celebrated with champagne. I went into 2014 with one goal scratched off my list!

For the Groom: Walk us through the behind the scenes of creating this special day:

I purchased the ring before Christmas of that year but decided that a NYE proposal was a better look. Going out to dinner is our thing so I knew that I wanted us to do that. I told her we should get dressed up and go out for a nice dinner for NYE. I spent time researching to find just the right restaurant in the city (Washington, DC). Narrowed it down, made a reservation and told them about the proposal. I slipped the server the ring when I went to the bathroom. The words just came to me when it was time.

What makes your love special?

It’s REAL..lasting love that never gets old!

What are you most looking forward to about your wedding?

We share a 4 year old son and we are excited to make our family official! Looking forward to celebrating our big day with him, family and close friends.
