Cindy & Ben in Bethesda, MD

The two agreed to meet for drinks to talk about Ben's diet, but ended up talking about everything but food. The Bride Cindy Klein, 30, a health coach The Groom Benjamin (Ben) Mann, 29, a real estate analyst The Date May 31 They continued to date for more than a year and had just bought a home together when Ben popped the question on a Saturday morning during breakfast. "I was so shocked that I could not speak -- just squeak," she says.
