Jinwoo (Will) and I got engaged in March 2008 after dating for close to 4 years! We met through friends - one of my girlfriends in particular would rave about this "guy" who was so "nice, smart, and smelled like laundry detergent!"
Well one day, the "guy" called me up one day for a date. I was unsure at first but decided I had nothing to lose and agreed. We had our first date in July 2004 during Venetian Night in Chicago. We have been together ever since!
He proposed in March 2008 while we were on vacation in Cancun. We were out with another couple to dinner, came back to our hotel and sat outside for a bit. Our friends decided they were tired and called it a night. They suggested we stay and finish our drinks before we head up. (I should have known right then and there but this was the last thing on my mind!). The lights went out and suddenly he was on his knees in front of me proposing!!!....
We're planning a summer 2009 wedding. The ceremony will be at his home church in Des Plaines, Illiniois followed by a reception at the Schaumburg Renaissance Hotel. The theme is simple, modern, and elegant.
