Tell us how you met! Was it love at first sight?

"We met at our first job out of college, amidst a group of 200 other new college graduates in a sales program."

"I said 'I love you' at a Dierks Bentley concert, with a bit of liquid courage on my side."

Pop the champagne, you're changing your last name! Tell us about the proposal!

"We got engaged at Lovers Key Beach. He lured me out to the beach on a rainy day for a "picnic", so I knew something was up. When we got to the beach, we were just walking along and I noticed my favorite animal - dolphins - in the water. As I was watching the dolphins, he got down on one knee behind me and popped the question."

How did you celebrate after the proposal?

"We picnicked and drank champagne as the sun went down, then headed out to a memorable dinner that night before we told anyone else the exciting news."
