The Date September 2
So when the two decided to take their first trip together to Europe, Chris seized the opportunity. While enjoying a dinner cruise down the Seine in Paris, the boat stopped just beside the Eiffel Tower, cuing Chris' bended knee proposal. "It's amazing that even after dating for five years, I was so nervous that night," he says. The couple set the date for Labor Day weekend, exactly two years from their engagement, giving them plenty of time to pull off a beautiful outdoor wedding in the Smoky Mountains.
