Brooke had just moved away to take a job in Washington, DC, but after dancing with Chris all night, she knew her heart was in Colorado. They dated long-distance for six months before Brooke decided it was time to move back to be with Chris.

Long lines and thick crowds thwarted his Eiffel Tower proposal, so he went with Plan B—a romantic picnic. Despite a comedic search for a corkscrew and the broken cork drama that followed, Chris found the perfect moment to ask Brooke to marry him.
