Tell us how you met! Who/what/when/where/why? Give us the details!
We met through a mutual friend at the Detroit Mercy Tutoring Center. Sara had just transferred to the school in Winter semester of ’13. We were both student athletes and spent time around overlapping groups of friends. However, it took some persistence and patience on Sara’s part to stick around until Joe found the common sense to take her on their first date.
How/when did you know he/she was the one?
Joe – When I found out she endured the freezing cold to entertain me on our first date! We also spent the entire first summer driving hours back and forth to each other’s houses. I think at one point she “borrowed” a neighbor’s car just to come see me.
Another way I knew: Throughout 2016 she would drop subtle hints by screaming “I JUST WANT TO GET MARRIED!!”
Sara – I feel like I always had a slight hunch that built up over many special moments. I think it really clicked when Joe’s parents confessed that they knew I was the one. In college, I travelled all the way to Buffalo to watch Joe play lacrosse and immediately grabbed a bag of Skittles. I met his parents shortly after and I remember his stepmom, Linda, eyeing my Skittles. Years later, she told me that she knew I was Joe’s match because he loves Skittles!
Tell us about the proposal. (Did you know it was coming? How long was it in the planning? Were you nervous? Excited?)
Sara is picky about her jewelry and had a hand in designing her engagement ring, which made it difficult to surprise her. After expressing my intentions to her parents I did not have a set plan for how I wanted to carry it out. I figured Sara would catch on to anything grandiose, so I surprised even myself when one fall evening I set up a few candles in our little rental house and waited for her to turn the corner. She was mid-sentence telling me to take the dog outside when she saw me standing with the ring box. She was so surprised that she couldn’t even cry! I cried like a baby.
Tell us one thing you love most about each other
Joe: I love the constant support she provides. She is my biggest champion and motivator, and has pulled me through some challenging times. She also has a beautiful laugh.
Sara: Joe is the calmest, most caring person I’ve ever met. He always brings me back to the basics of our relationship and never fails to make me smile.
If you feel comfortable, share with us something quirky or silly the other person does
Joe: She kisses our dog more than she kisses me.
Sara: Joe kisses his bikes more than he kisses me.
Besides getting married – what’s the one thing you are looking forward to on your wedding day?
Gathering all of our friends and family together. Also, late night bowling.
