When Anita Haar first met Michael Brown (who moved from California to Texas for work), she mistakenly took on the “wing woman” role and tried to set him up with her best friend. In the beginning, Anita only saw Mike as a friend, but as time went on, she realized how lucky she was that her attempted blind-date setup fell through, because she would have been handing off the love of her life.
After dating for two years, the couple had a trip planned to visit Mike’s family for a few weeks over the holidays. Mike knew that Anita was suspicious about him popping the question, so he did his best to throw her off. He arranged for them to visit a beautiful winery close to his family’s home during lunch one day, and within twenty minutes of being there, he lead Anita outside and got down on one knee. Completely shocked, and thrilled, she happily accepted his proposal.
Anita graduated from the University of North Texas where she studied business communications. She now works as a professional makeup artist and is the owner of Elan Makeup Studio. Michael attended CalPoly State University where he earned a degree in finance, and is currently the Regional Vice President of Berkley Advisors, LLC, in Dallas. The couple will tie the knot on Friday, September 28, 2012 in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.
