Jon and I met through a mutual friend who brought me to his church, there was an immediate connection, but we began dating about 2 months later. We have been dating over 5 years and couldn't be happier. We plan on being married 2013, being that both of us will be done with college by that time... We can't wait to spend the rest of our lives together... The Proposal: Jon and I decided the location of where we wanted our engagement party. My sister and I decided to go there and have dinner (meanwhile he was planning for WEEKS with both families and the restaurant). So Bekah and I get there, eat our appetizer and salad and sit in this beautiful restaurant talking and listening to beautiful italian music. Just as I was about to comment on the music, it stops. And then there is a few moments of quiet. Finally, I hear the first chords of a VERY familiar song… It was the song Jon wrote for me, years ago!! I look at my sister and immediately say ‘Bek, Jon is here, this is his song, he is about to propose to me!!!” She gets up, kisses me on the cheek and walks away. One by one, members of the wait staff come out and bring me a dozen beautiful red roses. Finally, Jon walks out with another bouquet of red roses and hands them to me.... and tells me how much he loves me, drops to his knee and pulls out a ring. The restaurant clapped, my sister got pics and his brother got a video... It was incredible. THEN… Bekah and Gary leave, Jon makes it like they are going home. We finish eating and then finally go to his house, and BOTH OF OUR FAMILIES were standing there! He planned a surprise Engagement Party for me, and both his family and mine were able to have amazing desserts, talk and watch the video of the proposal. It was incredible!!! Seriously the best day of my life!!
