How he proposed:

"We were at a friends wedding. For some reason that day I had a feeling that something was going to happen. While in line for food my best friends daughter turns around and says to her mom "what is Kevin going to do?" I of course at this point already knew what was possibly about to happen. My stomach was in knots instantly. I kept trying to get the thought that I may know something out of my mind. The night went on and then came the bouquet toss. I of course tried to avoid it because I am not the center of attention kind of girl. My best friend guided me up there with her. The bride went to throw the bouquet and instead of some crazy girl jumping to catch it the bride threw it back but held onto it. My mom was then tugging on my shoulder and behind me I find Kevin down on one knee. The bride came over to me, handed me the bouquet and says "you're next!!" I turned back to him, with I'm sure a deer in the headlights look. First I'm thinking, is this real life? Then my next thought was how everyone was staring at us and I wanted to just hide under a rock haha. I stared at him for what felt like forever waiting for the "question" I never heard anything at all so finally the DJ asks what my answer was and we both just say yes! Kevin then planned for the DJ to play. "I dont dance" by Lee Brice, so we danced (or penguin waddled). Afterwards, I got to hear just how much planning and thought went into it Most definitely a feeling and day I will never forget, I am one very lucky woman." In Clarissas own words
