Here’s a look at our interview with these two!
HOW DID THE TWO OF YOU MEET? FIRST DATE?
Braden: We actually first met in my buddy’s basement, we were both there to watch a Packer game.
Megan: Yep! I was there with a friend who was dating his friend at the time, so we met through them.
Braden: From there, we didn’t really have a classic first date. We hung out at a few times in group-things, and then on Halloween too.
Megan: The first “actual” date would probably be when I went over by him for dinner and he cooked. That would have been our first solo hangout.
Braden: And here we are over three years later!
TELL US ABOUT THE PROPOSAL!
Braden: I was coming up with a plan that included taking a hike with our dog and hiring a photographer. But then we quickly put an offer in a house and ended up buying it! So this whole time I had the ring and was trying to work out this plan, but I figured that moving in was the best moment to tie everything together. So on our move-in day – the truck had been unpacked, everything was in the house, and I had a nice dinner planned and wine ready to celebrate. But I could not get her away from unpacking boxes. So I’m sitting at the dinner table by myself, ready to propose, and she’s still in the bedroom organizing. Of course, I eventually convince her to take a break and join me, and I proposed!
WONDERFUL! AND THE RING? HOW’D YOU TWO DECIDE ON ONE?
Megan: I came into your Brookfield store and picked out my ring with Linda. It was very easy and she was great to work with!
HOW ARE THE WEDDING PLANS COMING ALONG?
Megan: We’re going to have it at The Gardens Wedding Center in Allenton, WI. We’ve got colors picked out, the dress is ready, photographer and DJ are both booked. So the only big thing left is the menu.
Braden: Overall I feel like we’re pretty far ahead for 2020, things are looking good so far!
Megan and Braden will be enjoying their complimentary date-night as the prize for being our Couple of the Month. All of us at The Jewelry Center wish you the best of luck as you begin this new life together!
