Kelly & Joe in St. Louis, MO
Though they grew up near each other and their paths likely crossed multiple times, Kelly and Joe did not meet until after both had graduated from college. After being introduced by mutual friends, the two struck up an email correspondence that soon led to romance.
The Bride Kelly Horneyer, 27, an architect
The Groom Joe Pimmel, 28, a CPA
The Date October 3
A little less than two years after they began dating, Joe proposed to Kelly by the Grand Basin in Forest Park. “I was so surprised I just hugged him and forgot to say ‘yes’ until a minute later!” Kelly remembers. And the surprises didn’t stop there -- Joe had also planned dinner, a carriage ride, and a party with their friends and family at a rooftop bar in St. Louis.
