Engagement Stories

Engaged! Megan & Jordan

Mar 13, 2014

The engagement story began a long time before Jordan asked “the question.”

Jordan & Megan

A couple days before the proposal, Jordan retrieved the ring from its hiding place:  a hollowed book on the bookcase in his friend, John Mark‘s house . Jordan had a vision to propose in an art gallery, showcasing a series of paintings of places that held significance to their story.  He went to their favorite gallery, Circle Gallery on State Circle, to ask if he could use the space for the proposal.  It just so happened that the art gallery was changing the exhibition that weekend, and the gallery curator was extremely excited to let Jordan use the building.  One day before the proposal, Jordan only had 8 of 26 paintings completed and needed to lock himself in his office’s studio to paint the remaining pieces.

As the afternoon before the proposal neared, Jordan asked Megan if they could stop by the Circle Gallery on the way to dinner for an art exhibition opening.  Megan replied “yea, sure…that’s my favorite gallery.”  Jordan thought to himself… ”nailed it.”  His friend, Elliott had been helping to pull everything together for the gallery, run interference with Megan, and share a few beers through the process. The evening finally came and all the paintings were completed and hung on the gallery walls.  Jordan picked Megan up and they walked towards the gallery.

As Jordan and Megan walked into the gallery, she looked around and realized that there wasn’t an exhibition opening party.  She stood speechless at the door connecting the dots:  gallery walls of Jordan’s paintings, table with wine and champagne, music playing, and again no one else there.  Jordan walked her into the center of the space, got down on one knee, and asked Megan to marry him.  She said yes!  The rest of the evening was spent taking in the paintings, talking of their future life together, and celebrating!

Cheers! Megan said “yes!”
