We met each other at a games night through mutual friends. Which lead to more games nights and time spent together. Mostly instigated by Dawn showing up at Jeremy's door with food! Eventually Jeremy bought in and was more involved in the process. LOL.
Dawn had a "Love Book" made for Jeremy filled with reasons she loves him. We had gone out for dinner and Dawn gave Jeremy the book afterwards. The last page was the proposal. Jeremy was caught off guard and delightfully surprised. Dawn had asked all of the children beforehand if they were OK with us getting married and they had given their blessing. She even let the kids decide what day to ask him and where they should go. The plan had gotten a little derailed as it had started raining so the book was given in the car rather than in a park like the girls had suggested but things seemed to work out fine despite that.
We will be having a casual ceremony outdoors (picnic blankets on the grass), followed by yard games and refreshments, then dinner/dance indoors.
