How/ Where did you two meet?
We met at the Clermont lounge on a Tuesday Karaoke night. HE was there with coworkers and I was coerced into attending with some friends. Our eyes met when I walked in, and we eventually ended up talking and exchanging numbers...
How did he propose?
We planned a trip to Florida for a long Fourth of July weekend (2016) first to see my family in Vero Beach on the east coast of the state (so that Tom could ask my father for his blessing. Which went very well!) and then over to St. Pete Beach on the west coast of the state, to spend 4th of July with my friends from high school. He was going to propose during the fireworks but there were lots of people and it was noisy and we both had gotten sick from the dinner we ate :/ So the next morning during a walk on St. Pete Beach, he got down on one knee and popped the question, which was met with a YES and a delightfully unexpected round of cheers and applause from nearby beachgoers.
What has been the hardest part about wedding planning?
Trying to make everyone happy and trying not to spend too much money! I'm a DIY kind of person, and unfortunately I feel like I need 10 of me to get everything done!
