    Name/FI name: Jill / Josh
    Age/FI age: 33 / 27
    When did you start dating: 5/5/12
    When did you get engaged: 4/11/13
    Wedding date: 11/16/13
    Wedding Venue/Location: U.S. Grant Hotel, San Diego, CA
    Colors: Black, Gold & White
    Proposal story: He surprised me with a trip to DC during the National Cherry Blossom Festival.  We arrived during peak bloom, checked into the hotel and we're on a hurried walk to catch a bite to eat before a bike and cruise tour.  I was going to skirt around Tidal Basin, but he wanted to walk through.  The tourists hadn't quite arrived and every tree was so pretty.  I saw a particularly beautiful tree with low hanging branches and a view of Jefferson monument in the back and mentioned we should come back and take our picture there.  Apparently, he thought there was no time like the present; he asked a bystander to take our photo and got down on one knee.
    What do you and FI do for a living (optional): I'm a scuba instructor and my fiancé is an aviation rescue swimmer in the U.S. Navy
