Wedding Date: September 19, 2015
How did you meet? Our initial meeting, on July 27, 2013, was organized between Nicole’s brother and sister-n-law. For years they believed we would be a great couple and made the push for us to meet when they realized we both were done with relationships that were going nowhere. We all agreed to meet up as a “laid-back” double date. As fate would have it, we hit it off, just as they’d hoped, and we’ve been inseperateble ever since.
Engagement story: This story mainly had me focused on just how to involve our little puppy Mugsy. I decided to purchase a mini, engagement ring, dog tag to add to his collar when the time was right. Well as luck would have it, Nicole mentioned trying to organize a family BBQ at our house, with both parents and siblings. All I had to do was say “that sounds great!” Nicole had no idea in the back of my mind I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to propose in front of the people who meant the most to us. After eating dinner, and a little socializing, I decided to sneak away and slip the dog tag onto Mugsy. Once Mugsy re-entered the living room, I asked Nicole to double check to make sure his collar was on correct. She was standing near the couch when I decided to kneel down. I brought the ring out, just as she saw Mugsy’s engagement dog tag that read “Will you marry us?” I pretty much blacked out and don’t remember much of what I said to Nicole, at that moment, but oh well, it doesn’t matter now, because she started crying and said “yes” in the end…..
