Melissa & Jeff in Austin, TX

Melissa first caught the eye of Jeff when he came across her profile picture on Match.com. The couple had an immediate connection, and after two years of dating, Jeff thought he’d use a photo to capture Melissa’s attention once again in his proposal. The Bride Melissa Young, 34, production artist The Groom Jeff Livingston, 37, audio software engineer The Date September 5 While dining at their favorite restaurant for Valentine's Day, Jeff handed Melissa an envelope and said he had something for her—even though he had already given her a Valentine earlier in the day. Inside was a photo of him holding a ring box with "Will you marry me?" written on the opposite side. The photo was taken at Mercury Hall, which ended up being the site for their wedding.
