Savannah and Wayne
How We Met
As shared with the world on our episode of House Hunters, I was visiting the Google campus in Chicago where he was working and had the pleasure of hearing him speak on a panel. I was the girl in the back that couldn’t stop staring at him to the point that his co workers asked if I knew him (I, know I am creepy but I also know when I see something special). We ended up bonding over our Greek affiliations and his recent move to the city. We exchanged numbers and the rest his history.
How He Asked
We planned an adventure to Egypt and it was my job to plan the fun activities and adventures we would do so I thought I was in control so there was no possible way he was asking on this trip. When we had a private tour guide visiting the pyramids after taking a picture on my phone, he wanted another picture in from of the pyramids on his phone. Of course I complied, but it ended up being a video (that the tour guide was NOT even in on) and he pulled out a ring box from his backpack when I thought he was just getting water. The next thing I know, he his down on one knee and I was shocked.
At the end of the day when we got back to the resort there was a fire display on the beach in the shape of a heart and our initials and a sign that said, “On July 10, 2013 you sparked me interest and on June 5, 2016 you lit my fire”. This was a wonderful way to celebrate the best engagement ever.
