Four years later, Paige was invited to spend the night with her best friend Katie while Justin put into motion a proposal that had taken him six months to plan. The day began with a scavenger hunt that included balloons filled with clues, crossword puzzles, and riddles that led the girls to a florist, a grandparent’s house, a local skating rink, and finally, back to the couple’s apartment. Paige opened the door to a gorgeous red dress and instructions from Justin to change into the gown and hop into the waiting limousine that would take her to dinner. She arrived at the Anatole Hotel’s restaurant, Ser, where Justin waited on one knee to ask Paige to be his wife. After dinner, Justin led his fiancé to her final surprise, an engagement party at Delaney Vineyards where her father, who works in Iraq, was there to share the extraordinary day with his family.
Justin is an architectural intern at EJES Architects and Paige is the Marketing Product Coordinator for Unilin. The couple will wed on October 20, 2012 at Delaney Vineyards.
