Rebecca and Eric
How We Met
We met May 23, 2015 when we were both students and working for Iowa State University’s Memorial Union. I was the Wedding Coordinator at the time and he was the Building Manager. That Saturday we were working our first wedding together with curtain in the back ballroom was broken and I demanded he find a way to fix it, three minutes before his shift ended. After a small argument, we managed to fix it but ended up at odds with each other when working other weddings.
In July of 2015 we worked our first wedding together where we saw eye to eye. Thirty-five days later he says he finally worked up the courage to ask me on our first date.
How He Asked
We went back to Iowa State University for my sorority’s 100 reunion. The Sunday we were there he took my two best friends and I out to brunch. Following brunch we went back to the Memorial Union were we met, reminisced on the numerous days we spent there. He told me he wanted to take a photo outside of the Memorial Union by the Fountain of Four seasons. After a few photos taken by our friend, he asked for one more and then proceed to get down on one knee.
