Teresa and Dave

How We Met

Dave and I share passions for the same types of activities and lifestyles. We crossed paths a few times before we ever spoke. I was drawn to him for his experience, personality and dedication. Luckily, a long time friend of mine is married to his close friend and she casually made the connection.

How They Asked

Dave and I share passions for the same types of activities and lifestyles. We crossed paths a few times before we ever spoke. I was drawn to him for his experience, personality and dedication. Luckily, a long time friend of mine is married to his close friend and she casually made the connection. We definitely share the same values: love for our families, fitness, and travel, so it was completely easy to fall in love with him!

Now… Dave was a sneaky one when it came to the proposal! He planned everything out to perfection and I had no idea it was going to happen on our trip to my all time favorite city – Paris, France. It was a beautiful sunny morning and we were headed to Sacre Couer, one of my all time favorite places, and little did I know what Dave had the ring box stuffed in his sock of all places! On the front steps as we were gazing out over the gorgeous city, he suddenly got down on one knee and turned to me and asked me if I would marry him! He was so sweet and it was literally perfect. Some nearby ladies got so excited when they saw him proposing that they approached us afterwards so that they could snap a few pictures for us.

We then went down into the city and found a wonderful painter who would re-create this special moment for us on a canvas that we plan on hanging in our new home together! Dave is the best! He designed the ring, purchased it without me knowing it, hid it in his sock, and then pulled it all off in one of the most special places possible. It was perfect.
