Tell us about the first time you two met!
"We met New Years Eve 2007 at a party of mutual friends. Eric said it was love at first sight for him. I had arrived at the party before him so I was already a little too tipsy to feel that same way! We talked everyday after that and went on our first date the next week. We both knew on our first date that we would always be together. Everyone always says that when you meet "the one," you just know. We both really didn't believe in that until it happened to us."

What is your idea of the "perfect" date?
"A perfect date for us is an elegant homemade dinner followed by an evening cruise on our boat."

What is the one thing about your wedding you are the most excited for?
"Our honeymoon! Two weeks in Greece!"

Tell us about your proposal story!
"We live in North Muskegon and love to go for drives by Lake Michigan. It was Halloween, 60 degrees and sunny - a gorgeous evening. We were on our way out of town and Eric wanted to drive by the lake first. I didn't think anything of it because we do that quite a bit. We walked down to the beach and we were the only people there. He got on one knee and asked the question. He managed to catch me off guard and I was totally surprised! The things he said to me were beautiful and we both were a little teary-eyed, laughing and crying at the same time. It was perfectly romantic."
