Are there any DIY (“do it yourself”) pieces to the wedding? Centerpieces, most décor for the wedding.  There will be lawn games set up by the wedding party (croquet, etc.).

We met online (eHarmony) and our first date was semi-blind.  We met at a Chinese restaurant, had waffles for dessert, and then went to a local movie theater.  It was a great, great first date.  Exciting!  But, we were both a bit nervous, I think.  It was my first online date and Joe says he had had a string of not so great ones before we met.

Joe proposed 2 years after our first date at sunset, at Cape Hatteras Lighthouse on the Outerbanks of NC.  Joe told me about a year before, while walking on a Lake Erie beach, that he wanted to build me a lighthouse someday.  The proposal was amazing.  I cried.  There are many more awesome details about the proposal and our lives we will share over the next few months.

Oh, and work: Joe is a metallurgical engineer.  He works for German company that provides engineering solutions to the global steel industry.  He has worked and lived in Germany, China, Brazil and India.  I’m a clinical psychologist (walking in my doctoral graduation at the end of April!).
