A bunch of Twitter locals get together for a Tweetup, something cool happens and someone catches it on their iPhone, video is uploaded to Youtube and people are tweeting it within minutes.

It may be the epitome of geeky, but when Paul proposed last night with many of our close friends there to share in the moment, that’s exactly what happened. Thanks to Alli recording the video and Chris taking pictures, we have a beautiful visual record of what many often don’t, and we are able to share that with those we wish could have been there with us (Amanda and Christy especially, miss you guys!) but couldn’t.

Paul popping the question as twitter locals share in the moment.

The actual capturing of the video was incredibly lucky, because he hadn’t told anyone he was going to ask last night. He did however start his speech with something along the lines of us ‘never breaking up again’ or something to that effect, and Allie decided just being a smartass that she needed to get that statement on video. We are so glad she did!

Since we are anything but traditional, you know the ring had to be different as well. Instead of a diamond solitaire, the center stone is an emerald (he’s from Ireland, and we met in May) with emerald-cut diamonds on either side. Stunning! 🙂


Thank you so very much to everyone who was here to share in the moment last night, and to all of our friends who couldn’t be here but have sent their well-wishes via Twitter, Facebook and email.

Most of all thank you to Paul, my wonderful, sweet, pain in the ass husband-to-be for making the moment so special. This has been so hard-earned for us, but so worth it. I love you.

    Sara (and Paul) after being a part of your life’s experiences (vicariously) during this whole process I wish I could have been there for the actual event. Life hasn’t been easier for either of you through all this but from experience surviving those hard time (physically and emotionally) and still loving and caring for each other the way you do only bodes well for your future together.

    I am happy for both of you and thank you for the video of the event.

    I so wish I could have been there to witness it firsthand, but yay for the smart cookie that decided to take video!!
    In the lifetime that I have know you Sara (yes lifetime, 25 years is a lifetime!!) This is one of the few times I have seen you truly happy in love. I am excited for this wonderful journey the two of you are about to take. The road isn’t always smooth, but it is the bumps that strengthen the bond between you. 🙂
    I love you guys! Paul, welcome to the dysfunctional, albeit pretty dang spectacular family!
