Wedding Date: May 11, 2013 in Loft at Sweetwater Country Club
How They Met: Stephen & Noel met the summer of 2003 through his cousin that Noel knew from college. They officially became a couple after Steve asked Noel to be his girlfriend on a lifeguard stand in North Wildwood, NJ. They have been together ever since and can't wait to officially be husband and wife!
The Proposal: Christmas morning 2011 (Noel's favorite holiday!) - The couple's Pomeranian puppy, Chloe, had a jingle bell around her neck. Steve had tied the ring to it and was hoping that Noel would notice after he asked her to make sure Chloe was okay. Of course she didn't and proceeded to get ready for the day of family parties!
After a few minutes, Steve picked up the 8lb pup and made her "dance" around in front of Noel. Both of them were laughing (Noel because Chloe looked so cute and Steve because she still was not noticing the engagement ring). Finally, she saw it! Steve asked the incredible words "Will You?" and Noel burst in to tears screaming "YES!" and hugging him harder then ever before. He slipped the ring off of the bell and onto her finger and they kissed and embraced for what felt like forever :).
