RACHAEL AND NED
HOW WE MET
Ned and I originally met online after a string of bad experiences with previous relationships. We immediately became close friends, and continued our friendship for several months. We counseled each other, hung out, and laughed all the time. After several months, we decided that we had additional things going on than just friendship. We decided to start dating just before Halloween 2009.
Ned arranged for our parents to have dinner together and, while we were visiting in my parent's living room, he asked me to marry him in front of our parents and siblings. Ned then set up a surprise engagement party that evening with all our closest friends and family at the Brown Bottle, to which we celebrated into the wee hours of the morning :).
