How they met: Sarah first saw Ian at the gym and thought he was cute. After about a year of seeing him around at the gym she realized that they had a mutual friend. Sarah asked the mutual friend to help set her up with Ian. About a month later, Ian got Sarah's phone number and called her. They went for drinks on a Tuesday night and the rest was history. Ian claimed that over the course of the previous year, he noticed Sarah and thought it was odd how she was always working out next to him :-)
The Proposal: Ian surprised me by planning a night out on the town in the middle of December. He said we were going to dinner for a date night. We took a cab downtown and got off near the horse and carriages on Michigan Avenue. Ian had reserved a horse and carriage for us. The horse took us around downtown eventually stopping at the gazebo on Lakeshore Drive and Oak Street. Once at that corner, the horse stopped and we took a walk under the gazebo which was all lite up with white hoiday lights. Ian proposed under the gazebo. After the proposal we took the horse and carriage ride to Joe's Stone Crab where both of our families and close friends were waiting in a private party room to celebrate!
