    Name/FI name: Rachel and Dave

    Age/FI age: 24/26, will be 25/27 on wedding day (funny bit: my birthday is 5 days or so before the wedding, so I'll be barely 25)

    When did you start dating: May 21st, 2011

    When did you get engaged: November 18th, 2011 (quick engagement, knew we wanted to wait a while to get married but still wanted enough time to plan)

    Wedding date: November 3rd, 2013 (Daylight Savings Day, oh yeah! Gettin' that extra hour of sleep or getting ready)

    Wedding Venue/Location: A country club near Richmond, VA

    Colors:  Pink and Blue- Our favorite colors! (various shades, my dress is Watermelon pink from David's Bridal and fiance's vest/tie from Men's Wearhouse is Horizon blue)

    Proposal story: He had the ring for several weeks and was planning on proposing on Christmas morning.  Then one day a friend was over at the house and we were studying for an upcoming test.  Before she left, she helped me pick out my outfit for our med school ball the next day.  While I was in another room changing, my fiance (then boyfriend) showed her the ring.  It was hysterical listening to them have this random conversation, and then later find out she was trying so hard not to squeal.  I then came back into the room too soon for him to hide it again, so he stuffed it in his jacket pocket.  Later on we went downstairs and he finally took his jacket off, hanging it up in the kitchen (having completely forgotten it was in his pocket).  That night we were watching the NASCAR truck series finale race and cuddling on the couch when we started talking about our future and marriage.  He then started talking all romantic-like, and proposed.  I knew he had the ring already, so I asked him if he was proposing for real or just being romantic, since there was no ring in sight.  He then ran to the kitchen and came back with the ring.  I was utterly and completely surprised.  It was perfect, and just plain us.

    What do you and FI do for a living: I'm in medical school (third year) and he works in IT, as tech support for a law firm/investment bank.

    Name/FI name:   Cyndi & Ben

    Age/FI age: 43/43

    When did you start dating:  1997 the first time.   April 2012 this time.

    When did you get engaged: July 4, 2013

    Wedding date: November 2, 2013

    Wedding Venue/Location:  The Fort, Morrison, Colorado

    Colors:  Turquoise/jade,  sage green, browns, creams

    Proposal story:   We've been talking about it for almost a year  but, a few days before we made it official, we were on  vacation  and found a rustic barn by a river that we both  loved while hiking.   We agreed it would be the perfect place for a wedding and that we both wanted a fall wedding.  I just assumed he meant fall of 2014 since there was only 10-11 weeks left on the season at that place. 

    Two days later, we were back home and looking at pictures of our trip and came to  a picture  he had asked me to take  of him and his mom right after DS and I had come back from a walk by ourselves, the morning of  the same day we had found  the barn.  He told me that he had just told his mom that  he was going to ask me to marry him.  (I could tell I had walked in on something  when DS and I came in that morning.)  Then we came to the picture of the barn and he  said he wanted to call to find out when it was available.   I clarified with him that he meant fall of 2014, since we would only have a couple of months to plan.  He looked at me like I had three heads and said he didn't want to wait another year.  I was completely thrown off that  he was ready to do it that fast.  It took me a few  seconds to wrap my brain around what was happening but, when I did,  I told him, ok, let's do it.   

    Turned out that location was already booked for the rest of 2013.  We picked November 2 because it was as far out as we thought we could safely go and still (probably) have an outdoor, fall ceremony and still give me enough time to plan.

    What do you and FI do for a living: I'm an attorney. He's  a science text book editor.
