Jessica & Brad in Wolcott, CO
Jessica met Brad on a ski trip. She knew he was a great guy, but she lived in New York City and he lived in Colorado. But even after she left, Brad kept calling. After flying back and forth for eight months, Brad proposed.
The Bride Jessica Warren, 29, a philanthropist
The Groom Brad Schaeppi, 32, a real estate broker
The Date September 12
He surprised her with a bottle of champagne and what appeared to be a gallon of Jessica's favorite ice cream. Inside the box were several smaller boxes. Jessica finally opened the last one and found it was empty! "I couldn't decide whether to get mad or laugh!" But Brad saved the moment by pulling out a canary diamond ring and asking her to marry him.
