Sarah and Brian

how we met

We first met at a speed dating event at Johns Hopkins, where we are both completing our PhDs. That night, we met through a mutual friend and talked outside of our 1-minute “date.” Even though it was against the rules, Sarah asked Brian for his number that night… and the rest is history!

how they asked

Since we shopped for the ring together, the proposal wasn’t a complete surprise, but Sarah did not know it would be that day. Brian made Sarah breakfast – her favorite, Eggs Benedict. She knew something was up since Brian had taken the time to make such a special meal! Later that day, they enjoyed a picnic at Cylburn Arboretum. Little did Sarah know, Brian had craftily hidden the ring box inside their picnic basket. Brian had written a letter to Sarah, which he read before getting down on one knee and proposing. Later, he surprised her with dinner at the Helmand Restaurant, one of their favorites near her apartment in Mount Vernon, Baltimore, MD. Her family also joined them to celebrate at dinner.
