How did you two meet?
Stepheny works at a church where Doug attends. There was a class that Stepheny was helping put on for work and Doug attended (he may or may not have known she'd be there. :)).

Tells us about the proposal.
It was on our one-year anniversary. We had plans to celebrate in the afternoon and then have our parents meet each other (for the first time!) over dinner. Doug planned a surprise at the Bel Air Country Club. As we walked outside for what Stepheny thought would be just getting a drink, there were rose petals on the green. Doug knelt on one knee and proposed! Then we went back to celebrate over dinner with our parents and Doug had orchestrated another surprise, having had all Stepheny's family fly in from out of town and his family come up from Orange County for an engagement party.
