From the Bride… We met in Seattle, Washington in March, 2011. Oddly enough, 6 months earlier I was given Don’s number by our friend Paul Sabovik, so that we could join efforts in our apartment searches and become roommates. Don decided to ignore my voicemail where I introduced myself and asked him to coffee, and when we finally did meet 6 months later, the first words out of my mouth after he introduced himself were “You never called me back.” I saw him again later that month at The Amazing Egg Hunt, in Mukilteo, WA, which he helped organize with Paul Sabovik Presents, and I spent the entire day trying to get hints as to where the hidden eggs were, and later that day we shared our first kiss while he was dressed up as the Easter bunny, mask and all. A few days later we had our first date at the Seattle Space Needle, where we shared a cup of coffee… from that point on we dated, and fell into an immediate rhythm and the rest is history.
We moved to New York City together after only 4 months of dating, and Don proposed to me during the firework display in the Italy pavilion in Epcot, Walt Disney World. Walt Disney World in Florida was a significant place to us because many years before, I worked in the theme park, and became close friends with Paul Sabovik… Who later was the reason I decided to move to Seattle, where he eventually introduced me to Don.
