Give us the proposal details! When? Where? How?
We were in Hawaii for a family vacation when Stuart convinced everyone to go to the capital building. Well, actually, everyone else knew what was happening except for me. Stuart loves history and wanted to propose in Honolulu since his grandfather had proposed to his grandmother in the same area when he returned from the Vietnam war. Stuart got down on one knee in the middle of the capital building. As he pulled out the ring, the change from his pocket came with it! He scrambled to pick it up and my sister told him to “forget the change!” and he proposed. It was lovely and wonderful and my brother got the whole thing on his Go Pro. Being surrounded by family during one of the most amazing days of our lives was awesome and we are so excited for this next step!

I’ve really loved being able to be creative! I really enjoyed making my own wedding bouquets, which is something completely new for me!
How do you stay sane under the pressures of wedding planning?
I started planning immediately, so I’ve had a whole year to plan. I’m also a teacher, so I did most of the work over summer break and we are getting married at the beginning of spring break!
