1) Tell us how you first met? Who what when where why? Give us the dirty details.

We met in front of a 7-11, strangely as it may sound. Esther was hanging out with her friend, Larissa, when two of Mike's friends introduced themselves. While they were talking, Mike arrived to meet his friends and that's when we first met.

2) When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did?, etc.

The first time we met, as corny as that may sound. I knew she was something special and she knew it the second she laid eyes on him.

3) 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?)

After dating for 8 years, we definitely saw this coming. The proposal took place after dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. We went to Rockefeller Center to ice skate but the skating rink was closed. It was very cold out (February) so I wanted to just leave. And then Mike said standing behind me... "Well I'm sorry I couldn't get you on the ice, but I can give you some." I turned around and Mike was down on one knee with the ring. I asked if he was going to ask the question... he said I already did but I'll ask again! I was so mesmerized by the ring I totally didn't even hear him ask me. I said yes we kissed and all the tourists watching us in the middle of Rockefeller Center broke out in cheers and applause. It was a very cute and special moment

4) Tell us the one thing you love most about each other.

Mike: I love Esther's warmth. She is quite possibly the sweetest most genuine people I've ever had the fortune of having in my life, let alone to be the love of my life.

Esther: Mike always makes me feel special and loved. And that we have been best friends for the 9 years we have been together.

7) What inspired your decor or theme?

The hotel itself, its modeled after a French chateau so we wanted to have our own modernized regal French country wedding.
