The wedding

June 24, 2012 at Woodmont Country Club

How they met

They met on an online dating site. David made the first move by emailing Kara to introduce himself. After a few days of emailing and talking on the phone, the couple decided to meet in person.

First date

They went out to dinner at McCormick & Schmick's in downtown Bethesda. After a nice meal, they were not quite ready to say "goodnight," so they headed to a local bar and talked until the bar closed.

The proposal

It started as a normal morning at the couple's townhouse. David was making pancakes when the doorbell rang. He answered the door and it was a delivery of a dozen roses with a note that read "hoping you didn't say no." When Kara asked who was at the door, David replied, "Oh, it was for the wrong house." He then quickly staked the pancakes and set the table. As Kara walked toward the table, she saw something shiny on top of the pancake stack. David then asked her to marry him.

What she loves most about him

"Besides his charming good looks of course, his thoughtfulness and sense of humor.”

What he loves most about her

"Her energy, passion, and ability to always make me smile."
