Susan & Nathan in Denver, CO
A joke about having tickets to a Michael Bolton concert was what convinced Susan Whittle to give Nathan Duncombe a shot. The two met at a mutual friend’s party, and Nathan asked Susan out a week later.
The Bride Susan Whittle, 31, social worker
The Groom Nathan Duncombe, 31, account executive
The Date August 2
It took Susan a month to get back to him, but once they went out, they clicked. Two years later, the proposal came when Susan least expected it -- while she was making a “to do” list. “I want you to be my wife,” said Nathan. “Yeah, someday,” replied Susan, engrossed in her list. When she finally looked up, she saw Nathan holding a ring box. Susan squealed and cried when she realized it was an actual proposal.
