"We met at a youth group convention in 2007, we became friends and started dating in 2009. Brandon waited until we went to Michigan to visit our families for the holidays to propose. He made sure to get everyone in the same room. He had his nieces hand me a Christmas ornament in the shape of a ring and ask if I would be their aunt. From there, he got down on one knee and proposed. The best part is that it was all caught on tape.
We were right on the Lake Michigan for the ceremony and reception and it gave us a gorgeous view. We like taking our dogs to the dog park and he also likes to take me on surprise dates. He tells me what kind of clothes to wear and just takes me somewhere."
