As Jacalyn puts it, she had woken up on the morning of May 13 and finally come to terms that her boyfriend of nine years, Rio was simply not going to propose that month.
The Bride Jacalyn Lee, 27, public relations manager
The Groom Rio Escueta, 31, an accounting manager
The Date October 20
Later that day, as Jacalyn was watching TV, Rio surprised her with an at-home proposal and a gorgeous ring tied around their dog's collar. Jacalyn gave a teary "yes!" and the two celebrated the evening New York-style with dinner and a Broadway show. For their wedding, the couple looked everywhere for a loft space, and when they found Peter White Studios overlooking the Empire State Building, they knew their search had come to an end.
