From The Bride:

So my friend, Emma (maid of honor) asked me to hang out with her and her other friends on Halloween at Fat Patty’s (local bar). This was the first time I met Jonathan, we did not talk much that night since we are both quite shy. However, Jonathan has told me that he knew I was the one for him from the moment we first meet. A few months later we went on our first date, which was a double date with Emma and her boyfriend, Z. After that we went on a few more dates but remained nothing more than friends. I finally told him how I felt and we began to date January 18, 2014. Our love story is one of my favorites since the best relationships come from friendship.
Fast forward a year to March 2015, as spring break was approaching my mother told me that she, dad, grandma, Jonathan and I were going to go to Nemacolin for the weekend. I had no idea what this trip was going to turn into though! Due to snow cancellations I had to take a qualifying exam for my Ph.D. program the Saturday our spring break started but still intended to go to Nemacolin with Jonathan and the family on Sunday.
Friday the 13th (!), the evening before my test I was studying when suddenly, my doorbell rang. As I answered the door I was completely shocked to see Jonathan standing there with a dozen roses! My immediate reaction was to ask “What are you doing here? I have a test tomorrow!” He told that me he missed me and could not wait another day to see me and wanted to know if he could take me to dinner. I thought this was incredibly sweet and started to cry. As we were getting ready to leave he said he wanted to ask me a question. With one hand on the door I turned around to see him down on one knee, asking me to be his wife! I dropped my purse and nearly screamed YES!!!!
We went to dinner that evening, where he told me about the reason for the trip to Nemacolin. My fiancé and parents (plus grandma) had planned out that we were going to go find a ring at Joyce’s Jewelers. I was even lucky enough that my grandmother offered up her mother’s diamond so we could continue family tradition.
Later we came home so I could study. Only a true science geek would get engaged then study biochemistry. Turns out it was for the best though, I basically got 100 on that exam. It was truly the best and most memorable weekend in my life. =)
Four days after the proposal we planned our wedding date, venue and planner. From there the planner took care of the rest to make our day magical.
