Sarah & Joe in Newport, RI
Just days after Sarah met Joe at a friend’s party, she found herself having dinner with him. But things didn’t get serious for over seven months. Fast-forward five years: Sarah was getting antsy for a proposal. It didn’t help that on their anniversary, Joe took her to the very same restaurant he had brought her on their first date -- without, unfortunately for Sarah, popping the question.
The Bride Sarah Garrett, 31, merchandising director
The Groom Joe Osnoss, 31, director at an investment firm
The Date June 29
Sarah was bummed all the way home until she opened the door to the apartment they shared and out came their dog wearing a mini tuxedo. As Sarah stepped inside, she found roses, champagne, and a ring box with a note that read “ring of your choice.” Needless to say, she was surprised!
