How We Met

How He Proposed
Mike took Jessica to Old House Vineyards in Culpepper, Va., for a wine tasting and picnic lunch. The grapes were in full bloom, and the staff encouraged the couple to enjoy the grounds at their peak. They sat enjoying a bottle of wine and talking about how good life was. Suddenly, Mike was down on one knee asking for Jessica’s hand in marriage. Jessica was stunned speechless—but finally able to nod “yes.”
