1: After growing up in the same neighborhood and the same school, we finally met 2 years ago. And yes, it was definitely love at first sight.
2: I first met Ben Halloween weekend, 2010. Within months we were talking about marriage. I figure I knew after a few dates that he was "the one". He was a lot like my dad, ethical, loyal and generous. Plus, who else likes theater, jazz, art, camping and sports? I had truly met my best friend and continue to prefer his company to any other. I love you, Ben Mooney.

5: Our second date was Halloween. Ben played Richard Gere to my Julia Roberts. Perhaps because of the costume, he fell hard and fast, as did I. What followed was a year of vacations to the north shore and one special trip to Itasca to scout wedding sites. We knew it was "the place" the minute we drove in! | Ben proposed on Christmas Eve, 2011. Perhaps not his finest work, given the setting of the proposal, but it was official that night! He re-proposed on July 4th,, with a much appreciated, down on one knee, proposal. The ring, a recreation of my mother's, was beautiful! | Preachers Grove. What a perfect backdrop for a wedding ceremony!
6: What a wonderful evening! The weather couldn't have been better and the food was incredible! It was so nice to celebrate, not one, but two nights with everyone. Let the party begin!
