Veronica and John instantly bonded over their love for history and the Washington Redskins when they first met. It would come as no surprise that their first date was a lecture on Marquis de Lafayette, and a tour of the Yorktown battlefield. On the weekend of their three-year anniversary, the couple went to a Komi restaurant in Washington, DC.  "After several courses, we were discussing what a great three years it had been together and how much our lives had changed. That's when John pulled out a ring and said he hoped the next 40 years would be as great and asked me to marry him. Very intimate, very low key, very perfect," says Veronica.

The engagement ring and weddings rings were neatly positioned within one another.
The bride wore ivory open-toed Benjamin Adams pumps on her wedding day.
On the day of the wedding, Veronica wore a strapless wedding dress with ruffles at the bottom purchased at Cherry Blossom Bridal.
