Sylvia & Johnson in San Jose, CA
On the night they first met at an Irish pub, Johnson walked Sylvia to her car, hoping to get her number. When they got there, they discovered that they drove the same exact pearl-white Acura; they took it as a sign that they were meant to be.

The Date October 18
A year-and-a-half later, Johnson and Sylvia went to their favorite Indian restaurant for a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner. After the meal, he gave her a photo frame as a gift. Sylvia thanked him, but failed to notice that the frame held a piece of paper that read, “Will you marry me?” It wasn’t until Johnson knelt down with a ring that Sylvia realized he was proposing!
