2: It was only a matter of time for the two of us to sift through the 50,000 students at The Ohio State University and find each other. With both of us playing on the volleyball teams at OSU, we spent a lot of time around each other and the other members of the men's and women's teams. Brett finally got the courage to ask Marisa out to dinner and our first date at Spaghetti Warehouse was the start of our exciting journey together.
8: "Will You Marry Me?"
9: ________________ | Kailua Bay, Oahu | August 21, 2009 | Hawaii was the perfect place to propose, as we both love the beach. We had several adventures throughout our week-long stay, including traveling to the North Shore, hiking Diamond Head, and enjoying a luau. On our last full day, we set out for Kailua Bay, on the east side of the island. Little did Marisa know that this would be the most exciting day of the trip. We walked to a secluded area of the beach, and as we sat marveling at the waves and beauty of the island, Brett asked Marisa to marry him. Of course, Marisa said "YES!"

46: HAWAIIAN ISLANDS HERE WE COME!
47: When Brett proposed on our first trip to Hawaii, we fell in love with the islands so much that we decided we had to go back for our honeymoon. This time we selected two other islands and chose to spend five nights each on Maui and Kauai. Brett planned the trip and got us perfect sunset seating dinner reservations at several restaurants six months in advance. We had the most amazing pools and lounge spots at our hotels on each island, but we both love taking adventures and had to plan a few. | MAUI & KAUAI | the islands of | Kauai | Poipu Beach | Maui | Haleakela | Kauai | Kilauea Lighthouse

49: Kauai | Salt Pond | In Maui, we drove the Hana Highway and did some amazing hiking that went through a bamboo forest and concluded at the base of an enormous waterfall. We got up at 4:15am to watch the sunrise from above the clouds on the top of Haleakala Mountain. We took surfing lessons and ate at several amazing restaurants, including Duke's and Hunuhununukunukuapuaa. In Kauai, we explored the most green and lush of the islands. We also ate at some beautiful spots and found the best snorkeling we had ever seen at our favorite beach, Poipu. It was a trip neither of us will ever forget.
