How We Met The Proposal Locations Bridal Party Registry Accommodations
We met on an airplane on Halloween. We bonded over out mutual love of the Padres (first thing we knew about each other), the fact that we are both native San Diegans, the fact that we had both flown cross country for a Daily Show rally, our love of video games, sushi, and Eric's beard. I knew he was relationship material when he did better answering questions on Cash Cab than the show's contestants.
He proposed in Tokyo right before our three year anniversary. We were visiting Stephanie, who is one of the bridesmaids, for a week. Eric got down on one knee in Ueno Park, the first major park in Tokyo, also the location where the emporer defeated the shogunate, leading to the opening of Japan to the West.
