Tell us how you first met? Who, what, when, where, why? Give us the dirty details.
Heather - “We first meet when we started our freshman year at Winona State in August 2010 on freshman move in day. We both did not know anything about the dorm we were moving into, only that we had no roommate (not by my choice..I had a slight panic attack - afraid I would not make any friends). When getting to the dorm and checking in, I was told I was living on the only co-ed floor of the dorm. You can only imagine what my father was thinking. When moving into my room, I was on top of my loft making the bed and looked across the hall and saw across the hall that the neighbor’s door was open. I also noticed the rugby ball sitting on top of the loft. I jokingly said to my mom, "Look mom its meant to be" and then I saw him!!! Brandon walked out of his room (the room directly across that hall from mine). I mustered up enough courage and walked out into the hall and tapped Brandon on the shoulder and asked if he played rugby.”
When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did?, etc.
Brandon - “Heather has been one of my best friends for over nine years. We met on our first day of college. I didn't know it then, nor did I know it four years later. But when I finally got to live with her after our final summer apart it started to become clear. I had something I could not let go.”
Heather - “No idea, I just knew.”
Tell us about the proposal. (Did you see it coming, how long was it in the planning?, how did you feel? nervous, excited, freaking out?)
Heather - “He took me out for a 7 year anniversary dinner (also Valentine's Day) to the tallest building in Oklahoma (the Devon Tower). At the top of the tower is a very fancy restaurant called Vast. I gave Brandon a card at the beginning of dinner and wrote a bunch of sappy love stuff but the biggest thing I wrote in it was, "I was trying to find the perfect way to sum up our 7 year relationship, but could not". Brandon waited until the end of dinner and brought up that part of the card..."I think I found a way to sum those 7 years, with these little 7 words.... Heather Mae Kohl, will you Marry Me? Brandon got down on one knee and proposed.”
Tell us the one thing you love most about each other.
Brandon - “I love how no matter what Heather is always there for me, telling me to shoot for the stars and that nothing can stop me. She truly is one of the most selfless people I know.”
Heather - “His compassion and drive.”
If you feel comfortable, share with us something silly or quirky the other person does.
Brandon - “Heather loves q-tips and cleaning her ears.”
Heather - “Brandon has a lisp.”
Besides getting married - whats the one thing you are looking forward to on your wedding day?"
“Having everyone we love in one place.”
