Kristle & Todd in Fort Worth, TX
Kristle and Todd were both looking for roommates but found much more. A mutual friend put the two in touch, and, Kristle says, "when I saw his big blue eyes I knew I had gotten more than I had bargained for." Within a couple of days, the two were dating.

The Date November 3
Todd first popped the question in the back of a taxi as the couple were wrapping up a concert cruise trip -- and he asked again, this time with a ring, when the two had returned to Texas and he'd gotten the mother of the bride's blessing. "I said yes both times," says Kristle. Even with just four months to put everything together, Kristle was in her element planning their Fort Worth wedding.
