Detroit June Bride of the Month: Tania
On September 14, 2013 the You’re The Bride team will be helping to coordinate the beautiful wedding of Tania and Daniel. Heres the story from the bride on how the couple met, fell in love and got engaged:
work as a pre-school teacher in Livonia for children ages 3-4 years old, I love
what I do. In 2007 I was working at the Redford Grill restaurant where I met my
fiancé Dan. Dan’s friend Robbie brought him up there to eat one evening because
Robbie’s Aunt was an owner of the restaurant and Robbie also worked there. Dan
didn’t say anything to me that night, but after he left he asked Robbie about
me because he thought that I was very pretty. Robbie told Dan that he hadn’t thought
about it before, but that we would be perfect for each other. Robbie’s Aunt
told me that Dan was a really nice guy who had been in the army. Robbie gave me
Dan’s phone number and I texted him a couple days later and he called me. We
began to talk constantly after that and soon we went on some dates. At midnight
New Year’s Day 2008 Dan asked me to be his girlfriend as we rang in the New
Year and I said yes.
the end of 2011, Dan and I were on the internet one evening looking for
something to do on New Year’s Eve and we decided to see what the different prices
were for hotels around New York during that time; he suggested that we go to
New York to watch the ball drop in Times Square since he had some time off of
work. I thought it would be a fun new experience and it would be nice to spend
the time together, so we went.
New Year’s Eve, Dan and I found a good place to watch the ball drop. We had to
stand in the same cramped area for around 10 hours, which wasn’t as much fun as
it looks on television every year; but that year the weather was great and I was
with my handsome man, so we were comfortable and happy together. The slight
discomfort of standing around for all that time became worth it as the ball
came down and everyone shouted and cheered, it was an amazing moment. After the
confetti dropped we headed out of our confined area toward the sidewalk. We had
to climb over a metal barrier to get to the sidewalk; Dan jumped right over and
I struggled to get over, but someone else helped me. I was a little frustrated
at him for not helping me over the barrier, but I didn’t realize that while I
was struggling he had handed his camera over to a police officer. When I came
over to Dan I reached into his pocket to grab my cellphone which he had been carrying
for me, but I also grabbed something else out of his pocket that I didn’t
recognize. Dan must have been too excited to notice this because after I pulled
out the two items he backed up and reached into the pocket I had just explored.
He didn’t seem to find what he was looking for. In his nervous and excited
state he couldn’t hear me asking what the item was that I had pulled out of his
pocket. He frantically began searching every pocket and he looked all around
him in a panic. He stopped for a second and the police officer holding his
camera said “Maybe you should look at what is in her hand.” Dan was finally
relieved as he took the box and got down on one knee. He said to me “Babe, I
love you so much, will you marry me?” He opened up the box and there was a
beautiful ring waiting to be put on. My answer was a definite yes! I was so
surprised and speechless. I feel so happy and blessed to be the one to marry
him. I called my family that night and everyone was so happy!”
The happy couple are getting married on September 14th at the Calvary Missionary Church in Livonia in front of 200 guests. Tania has four bridesmaids and Dan has four groomsmen. The reception will be held at the Italian American Center in Livonia, MI.
Congratulations on your engagement and we wish them many happy memories!
