Read all about their love story and check out some engagement pictures down below:
How did you meet?
They say there are two sides to every story, so here goes…
We attended the same high school, but I’ll be honest and say that I didn’t know Doyle. Back then, word on the street was Doyle kept a shrine of me in his locker with hopes of one day dating me. True story lol…
I contacted Michelle on Facebook and asked her out on a date. After months of trying, I finally got her to say yes. We became friends and the rest is history. True story lol.
Share one of your favorite dates.
Our favorite date was held inside Forest Park where Doyle surprised Michelle with a surprise candlelit picnic.
When did you know he/she was the one?
Michelle knew Doyle was the one when she couldn’t go a day without thinking about him. In addition, both her parents approved. She already knew but having both their blessings meant a lot. Doyle knew Michelle was the one when the infatuation stage was over and you were still eager to court and date her.
How did he pop the question?
Christmas day 2016 got a lot more exciting when Doyle popped the question to Michelle. In true Doyle fashion he planned out a masterful scheme to get Michelle and her family out of the house. There was a knock on their door, and a group of firemen entered asking to test the house for a gas leak. Everyone was scared after being asked to exit the house; the situation sounded serious.
After standing anxiously outside in the street, Michelle turned to see Doyle on one knee in front of the fire truck. Lights! Camera! Action! The sirens were loud but Michelle hoped Doyle could hear her say YES! while they were being serenaded by “A Couple of Forever’s” being played in the background.
What is your favorite thing about your fiancé?
Doyle’s ability to put others before him and love unconditionally. Michelle’s caring and Catering nature.
How do you envision your wedding day?
A romantic intimate “experience” full of love.
How did you decide on your venue?
Ceremony: The Jewel Box is held inside our favorite park where we had our favorite date and it’s also where Michelle’s parents said “I do”.
Reception: We both fell in love with the character and regal feel of the Barnett on Washington. To top it off its located on WASHINGTON!
Are there any special or family traditions you’ll be incorporating?
