When Mikey called me in October of 2016 and asked me if we could be in St. Louis during the month of October this year, I was curious about what he was planning. He quickly told me his plans for asking Brittney to be his wife and that we would have to be careful about our conversations here on, because it was a surprise proposal.
The day had finally arrived and we met Mikey along with a group of their friends and family. Since it's been almost a year since we've last seen him; we grabbed some hugs, a peek at that gorgeous ring, and headed out to the pumpkin patch. Huddling under an umbrella and trying to blend in with our surroundings as Brittney and her family searched through the patch looking for the perfect pumpkin. When Mikey yelled out "Hey, Brittney!" She turned around and I swear, I saw her jaw drop. She couldn't find the words and looked at her Dad, you could tell she was searching for what she should do next, when her Dad said, "Go to him." She quickly climbed over the pumpkin vines and made her way to Mikey, down on his knee, in front of the pumpkins laid out reading "WILL YOU MARRY ME?"
Brittney says, "My favorite part was everything! I was completely surprised! I'm surprised I didn't poop myself! I still can't believe he actually proposed after all these years and him telling me it was never going to happen. He pulled it off! I love how he planned it out for over a year & picked out the ring by himself. I love that he included our family, friends, and Elle x Troy came in town to take a once in a lifetime photo op!"
TEN YEARS these two have been together.
Brittney and Mikey first met in middle school and later reconnected in high school.We knew each other from middle school and reconnected back in high school. They fell in love and have been laughing at each other ever since.
These two are the kind of people that create adventure & laughter wherever they go. Brittney loves to scrapbook and Mikey is always busy working on a project knees deep in tools. Together they love going out to eat (especially Pizza), finding new places to check out, and searching through flea markets and yard sales.
Brittney say " We never have a dull moment in this relationship. With my blonde moments and his humor, we are always making people laugh!"
Last year they bought their first home together and they found out a few things about each other that apparently are not deal breakers, because here they are engaged. Mikey found out how OCD Brittney is and she found how particular he can be. She also fell in love with his dog and says he's her world.
An ideal date night for these two looks like Imo's Pizza (for those of you not from St. Louis, Imo's is the best pizza ever!) and a movie!
Mikey thinks Brittney is cute, caring, determined, intelligent, self motivated, and stubborn. All things he loves about her. Meanwhile, she says similar things like; "he's adventurous, caring, loving, determined, & stubborn. He's my everything! I could never imagine him not with me. My supporter!"
