Elise and Christopher’s relationship quickly blossomed after their first date. The couple dated for 15 months before he popped the question. 

Christopher invited Elise on a special date to the Holiday Pops show at Music Hall. “He picked me up and he said, ‘Let’s go to Music Hall to pick up the tickets before dinner.’ I thought that was a bit strange, but we went in and picked up the tickets at will call,” says Elise. “He then suggested that we go to the lobby to check things out, so we walk in the lobby of Music Hall and it’s completely empty except for one table in the middle of the room. The table had a tablecloth on it and a single rose. So I thought, ‘Oh maybe they are getting ready for a pre-cocktail party before the show.’ We walk up to the table and then I started to realize what was happening! When we get to the table he says, ‘Well actually this rose is for you.’ ”

Christopher went down to one knee and Elise said, “Yes.” A photographer and videographer were on hand to capture the special moment. 

The couple celebrated their big day with a winter wonderland themed wedding on December 12, 2015.
