Recently Ringed: Tiffany McNeal, 34, and TC Slater, 29
These St. Louis couples share their engagement stories.
How We Met: Tiffany and I met at the Lake of the Ozarks in June of 2008 during LMEs (LME is a St. Louis-based promotion group) Summer Reign Weekend. There was immediate attraction between us, and we ended up spending a good part of the trip together. Once we got back to St. Louis, we continued to develop our relationship.
The Proposal: The next summer, we went to Summer Reign 2009this time, together. Every year, theres a yacht trip with a DJ and entertainment that goes around the lake. I knew the yacht would pass my parents house in Porta Cima, so with the help of a couple of friends, I hung a proposal banner off the deck. When the boat passed by, everyones attention was directed to the house, I dropped on one knee, and with nerves of steel (and a queasy stomach), I proposed to Tiffany with a ring that my father gave to my mother when he proposed over 30 years ago.
The Big Day: February 21, 2010 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
