Linda & John in New York, NY
The first time John met Linda, he wasn't sure she liked him. He couldn't have been more wrong. Linda and John worked together at a financial software company at the time. Once the two got to know each other they became fast friends and that eventually blossomed into love.

The Date April 26
About a decade later the two scheduled a spring vacation in Paris. One night, while taking in the view on an Ile Saint-Louis footbridge, Linda asked John, "Could this night be anymore perfect?" The moon was in the sky and an accordion was playing in the distance. When she turned to look at John, she saw him down on one knee and he proposed to Linda in French. Of course she said "Oui!"
