FROM THE BRIDE // Roberto and I met a little over 2 years ago while doing a service year in AmeriCorps and have been inseparable ever since! We had talked about getting married so I knew an engagement was coming I just didn’t know when. I already knew it was going to be the best day ever because we were going to see my absolute favorite band (Johnnyswim) which I had been looking forward to for months!! Little did I know Roberto had also been planning a proposal the whole time. He asked me to meet him a little bit early so that we could “go to dinner” but when I met him at the venue, he surprised me by saying that we were actually going to be able to meet the band! So we go in to meet the band and they are rehearsing songs for the show. After a couple songs they start to sing one of my favorite songs (Summertime Romance) and the lights go down and pretty twinkly lights come on. Midway through the song Roberto got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! Afterwards the band came to talk to us and signed one of their records for us. It was the most surreal experience! I’m really looking forward to marrying my best friend and I can’t wait for all of our family and friends to come together for the wedding.
