Who proposed? How did they do it?
Marissa: "He proposed. He proposed to me while I was in my pajamas at home in our kitchen. I was in the kitchen doing something, then he comes in to be sweet and giving me hugs. I try to break away from hugging to finish whatever is was I was doing. THEN he grabbed my arm to turn me around AND HE'S HOLDING THE BOX OPEN WITH THE RING WE FOUND TOGETHER!! So he's standing their cheesing like a kid on Christmas morning with a couple tears running down his face and the only thing I could mutter out was WHAAATTTT! Then we started kissing and it honestly felt as though time had froze. We both were crying and I was in just complete shock by what just happened. Then it all settled in and I was on cloud 9 for weeks after."
How did you two meet?
Marissa: "We met on a dating site called Plenty of Fish."
"We are goofy, happy and spit out corny lines to each other."
What was it like early in your relationship?
Marissa: "The same as it is now! We are goofy, happy and spit out corny lines to each other. In the beginning though we were learning each other but it honestly felt as though we had always been together."
Name one thing you love about each other.
Marissa: "I love how much of a good person he is."
Josh: "I love her smile and making her do it."
Tell me any funny story involving the two of you.
Marissa: "So when we first started talking we discovered we we're both from Florida. Then we realized that our hometown's we're only an hour a half apart. But we met here in Charlotte, NC in 2015. It's a small world we live in. Makes going home easy to see family."
What's next for the two of you?
Marissa: "We have booked and paid for our whole honeymoon in May 2019 to Colorado. I've started a new job. Josh and I will be doing some home improvements and putting our home up for sale in a few months. Then hopefully we will have found a new home when we sell ours."
