Posted in: She said YES!

November 24, 2015


Hello all,

As we prepare for Thanksgiving holiday, we wanted to post a super special couple who we met just a few months ago – Kelly and Michael.  They will be celebrating their nuptials in February of 2016 at Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center located on the campus of University of MD College Park.  We are super excited to be assisting them with fabulous decor for their big day.  Kelly and Michael both have great style and class that will surely be shown on their big day.

::How they met::

Michael and Kelly met on December 17, 2009 at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Michael was there to help his friends celebrate their graduation. Kelly was getting ready to graduate too the very next day with her Bachelors in Criminal Justice. Michael and some of his friends came over to Kelly’s apartment where a graduation celebration was going on. Kelly noticed Michael as soon as he walked in, but limited conversation was held between the two. Kelly saw Michael again the next day at the graduation and spoke.  She asked if he cheered for her when she walked across the stage, Michael grinned and said, ” Yes, I did.” The two went their separate ways. Kelly found Michael on twitter the next couple of weeks and ‘followed’ him. They both sub-tweeted each other until one day Michael sent her a message stating, “How are you Ms. Thomas?  Do you mind if I can call you sometime?” The rest of their story is history……

::The Proposal::

{Great job Michael!  You have set the bar for the guys that have yet to propose!}

Kelly desperately wanted a graduation party and even started planning one herself in October 2014. She quickly quit because she felt it was too last minute with way too much stuff to plan. December 20, 2014 will definitely be a day that Kelly remembers forever! Kelly’s day was FULL of surprises. The day started with some of her friends surprising her and showing up at the house and taking her to breakfast. After breakfast Kelly and her friends went to ArtJamz in Washington D.C. where they enjoyed a glass of wine and painting. Kelly received special treatment as she got her makeup done and dressed for a night out with the girls (so she thought). When Kelly arrived to 201 Lounge she was surprised by family, friends and Michael screaming “SURPRISE”! Kelly was shocked and stunned that Michael had thought so much of her to throw her a surprise gradation party. The night ended with multiple red boxes, a heartfelt letter, and Michael asking Kelly to be his lovely wife!
