The Proposal Story:
On November 18, 2006, Jordan told Samantha that he had planned a surprise for her, but that he needed her help carrying it out. He said that he wanted to take her on a picnic to North Campus, but he didn't know what kind of food to bring. So the two of them went to the store and bought some picnic food before heading to North Campus with a blanket and some jackets to enjoy their picnic in the cold weather.
About halfway through the picnic, Jordan told Samantha that the reason he had brought her to North Campus was because one of the University of Georgia a capella groups was performing on the steps of the University chapel that evening. Samantha was excited about the informal concert, and when a few of their mutual friends showed up for the concert as well, she suspected nothing out of the ordinary.
The group sang a few songs before beginning "Come What May" from Moulin Rouge. Instead of one of the group members singing the male part, though, Jordan turned to Samantha and began singing the words that they both knew very well... Before he had finished, Samantha was crying, but she still hadn't quite made the connection. When Jordan took out the ring and got down on one knee, he said to her: "Samantha, I love you more than anything else in this world and I want you to be my wife. Will you marry me?" Of course she said yes!!
We are planning on having the wedding ceremony in the courtyard of the Mansion on Forsyth Park in Savannah, Georgia on September 20, 2009 starting at around 10:00 in the morning. The reception will follow at the Lady and Sons restaurant at around 11:00, about a mile from the Mansion.
We have decided upon a classic "bride and groom" theme for the reception and the colors for the wedding will be turquoise and magenta.
