Melissa & Adi met at O'Neill's on St. Patricks day four years ago. They had each gone there with friends and ended up at tables near each other. To this day Adi can still remember the dress Melissa wore when she walked into the pub that night. Adi asked for Melissa's number even though she had told him she was moving to California, plans that she would end up canceling because of him.
After moving to Missouri a few months before Melissa could join him, Adi came back to visit for Valentine's Day. They went to Third Street Stuff for coffee and then walked around downtown, eventually ending up in Triangle Park. Adi got down on one knee and asked Melissa to marry him. She was taken completely by surprise, not really believing it at first. The magic of this moment was compounded by the sudden snow flurries and the lack of other people around. It was a private moment that made it all the more special.
Congratulations Melissa & Adi! I can't wait for your wedding next year.
