Where/How you met your FI or Husband? My (ex) best friend used to work for him. He was her boss. I had broken up with my boyfriend at the time, and she asked if she could set me up. I went on a date a week (!!) after I ended my previous relationship and we’ve been together ever since!

Where was your first date? We went out to dinner at an Irish pub near his house.

The date you became ‘Official’? March 18, 2012

Engagement date? April 20, 2013

Where was the proposal? We went to the beach for the weekend, and I knew it was going to happen. I accidentally got super drunk during the day and we both passed out for 3 hours from 6:30-9:30 (him w/his shoes on, lol). I guess we were both a bit nervous! Then we went out to dinner and walked down to the boardwalk (it was empty) and he got down on one knee!

Ring? It is his great grandmothers engagement ring. She gave it to him specifically for me.

Wedding date? July 5, 2014

Where did you get or getting married? At a local venue near my house!

Wedding band? I just picked it out. It is a band that goes on both sides of the ring (I guess called a guard?). His great grandmothers ring is on the smaller side, so I wanted to add some bling to it so I thought this was a good way to do it!
