Date of Engagement: June 2014
Wedding Date: December 2014
How Did You Meet?: Scott and I met in middle school, and started dating in high school. On our first date we were 15 years old, and made our relationship “official” after I turned 16 (per my parents rules). We became an official couple on January 13, 2008.
Engagement Story?: Scott wanted to completely surprise me, and make sure that I didn’t see it coming. So on a Tuesday night, we had planned to go suit shopping for Scott. He was chosen to be the commencement speaker at his graduation from Kettering University and needed a new suit. Scott dragged his feet to Men’s Wearhouse in Brighton because he is not one much for shopping. After we arrived, we spent about 25 minutes in the store, and Scott began to try suits on. He came out of the dressing room in my favorite suit, and asked me, “so you really like this suit”, and I said yes, and then he said, “rank this suit on a scale from 1 to good enough to propose to someone in.” I didn’t even know what to say, and before I knew it he was on one knee and asking me to marry him. I was in complete shock. Soon after the staff came out with a bottle of champagne, champagne flutes, and flowers. It couldn’t have been any more perfect.
