Date of Engagement: August 24, 2012
Wedding Date: December 27, 2013
How did you meet? Katie was a varsity cheerleader in college, and Steve, having already graduated, was helping to coach the team.
Engagement story: Steve had just received a job offer to work at a large law firm in Michigan, and Katie had just passed the patent bar exam, so Katie thought she and Steve were going out for a nice dinner to celebrate. Instead, the dinner was to celebrate something else–an engagement!
Steve had coordinated everything with the restaurant in advance, and when the manager put two dozen red roses in front of Katie, Steve got down on one knee holding the ring he spent months researching and designing. After dinner, Steve surprised Katie again by having both of their families waiting next door for dessert.
