Engagement story:

Christmas Morning we were opening gifts and he gave me an empty box with money in it and said this would be the down payment on a ring he began picking up wrapping paper on the floor while on his knee and said u have one more gift not thinking anything of him kneeling I opened a larger box and the ring was in a ring box and he asked if I would marry him!

From the Groom: Walk us through the behind the scenes of creating this special day ?

We have two kids and Melanie is super family oriented and I knew how important it was to have the kids involved. I thought what better way than when we are all opening gifts Christmas morning. I didn’t even let her get all dolled up I wanted her to be in her PJ's, relaxed, just normal!
