We asked readers to share their marriage proposal stories with the New Castle News for a special Valentine’s Day Contest we are conducting. Here are today's contestants.
My husband proposed to me twice. We will be married for 22 years on Feb. 23.
CHRISTINA G. LAMBERTO
Justin and I met in college in 2009. While we were dating, I shared my dream — being proposed to at a major sporting event, never thinking it would actually happen.
ANDREW P. KLADITIS
I knew I had the girl of my dreams when I purchased “the ring” on my birthday — Oct. 17 2001. That week, I ordered two tickets for the Pittsburgh Symphony Holiday Pops at Heinz Hall in Pittsburgh for the Dec. 23 show.
My husband, Sean, proposed to me at my favorite restaurant, Fox’s Pizza.
LORI HALE MAGAZZINE
Twenty years ago, on Feb.14, I had my first date with Rich Magazzine. Rich brought me three red roses on our first date.
My name is Anjelica Marsh. I am 23 years old and here is my engagement story!
The Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2 had become the soundtrack to our courtship, as we often had it on in the car as we drove to dinner or dates.
I had convinced my wife it was just a date day since she’d had a bad week.
Justin’s proposal to me was quite unexpected, even though we had been dating for several years.
I was sitting on the couch watching TV when my boyfriend at the time came in from work. He was excited to tell me that the company he was working for was having a contest.
