How Did You Meet? We met at a mutual employer. I worked on a specialized team, that colleagues could call to ask questions. When the colleagues had questions, the calls would randomly come to my team…and sometimes we would offer our direct extension if the person wanted a primary contact. In our case, Stephanie called my team, and it randomly came to me…from which I extended my extension for her to use. The very next day, Stephanie called into the random line again…and got me. I joked with her, and asked why she didn’t call me directly. From that point forward, I was able to start emailing then Facebook…then finally a date (after about three months). The rest is history.
Engagement Story: Our favorite Michigan Vineyard is Chateau Chantal in Traverse City. I surprised her with a weekend Bed and Breakfast on the Vineyard, and made the four hour trip to our favorite North Michigan town. While I took her to dinner (on the Big Day), the staff was nice enough to place a bench on the West Lawn (awesome view) and accompany the bench with our favorite wine and two glasses. From there, I nervously presented the ring (purchased with confidence from our favorite Rottermond Jeweler Rep, Gina) on one knee and (thankfully) she accepted. We went on to finish the bottle on the lawn. When we went back to the room to get another bottle, I ordered some fresh MI flowers, a bottle of the Vineyards Sparkling Wine, Cheese, Crackers and MI chocolate covered cherries….which were waiting for us in the room. All in all, it was a great success, and we now make it a point to always have a fresh bottle of wine from Chateau Chantal.
