Suzy & Rob {engaged}

During their first year together they went on a trip to Vegas. Family and friends worried that they’d get married while they were there. Little did everyone know it would be 6 years before that would happen!! Rob will say he knew on that trip, while Suzy admits it took longer for her. But when she knew, she knew. And she made it known in no subtle manner that she was ready. She picked out the ring, showed him, then started putting photos of it on his computer. She had no idea that he not only already had the ring, he’d already taken her parents to brunch to ask for their approval. (Later stories tell that Suzy’s mom was saying YES before he could even get the words out!)

Brittany & Adam {engaged}

Sometimes when you are dating someone, you ask yourself if the person you are with is “the one”. And sometimes, you know immediately. “When you know, you know.” It’s not just the little signs – like the fact that she wore that amazing green dress on their first date and it just happened to be his favorite color – it’s the deep resounding feeling that you know this person is someone you’ll spend forever with. Plain and simple.

Brianne & Jonathon {engaged}

“Who is this guy sitting at our table?” she wondered. Both Brianne and Jon are shy, so the fact that they actually ended up talking was somewhat of a miracle. They talked about people they both knew, and talked the night away. She can’t say wether it was the cocktails or being caught up in the moment, but as he was leaving she grabbed his phone, entered her number, and told him he better call her. Her friends watched her in disbelief. He can’t say wether it was the cocktails or being caught up in the moment as well, but when he got out to his car, he immediately called her. The rest, is history!

Trisha & Ryan {engaged}

“Hello. Nice to meet you.” She said upon meeting Ryan in passing at Lucas Park Grill in St.Louis. He knew he wanted more than introductions and pleasantries. He wanted to know her. So the very next day when a random number was texting her and asking her out – upon learning it was Ryan, Trisha figured “why not!”. He didn’t know her favorite food was Mexican, but the fact that he took her to Chava’s Mexican Restaurant was definitely a plus. They talked about family, friends, work, and extra curricular activities, and things went flawlessly. Before they knew it, it was time to say goodnight – both hoping for a second date. And there was a second, and a third, and so on. Until one day, everything would change…

Abby & Adam {engaged}

Abby met Adam one night out at a local bar. It was just by chance that they were introduced. He thought he had no chance, but what he didn’t know was that there was something about him she liked. It may have been his smile looking back that initially made her stop and take notice. But upon learning more about his personality – she just had to know him better… and she would get that opportunity.
It started with a simple date at Olive Garden. Either could barely talk they were both so nervous, but after a little while they began to break the ice – and not too long after that first date – they began to fall in love.
