I’m delighted to introduce another lovely couple who have very kindly agreed to share their flash mob proposal story with us! So sit back, relax, and enjoy Heath and Sarah’s romantic story.
Please introduce yourselves
My name is Heath Lichty and I recently got engaged to Sarah Wedebrand.
How did you and Sarah meet, Heath?
We actually met each other at Village Pointe (where the proposal took place) in June 2011 and started dating shortly after. Over the last year it became more clear to me that Sarah was the one and only for me and I wanted nothing more then to spend the rest of my life with her, so the planning began…
And what was involved in all that planning?
I choose village pointe because it’s a place that she most likely wouldn’t suspect as we stop there sometimes after work for a drink or quick bite to eat. It also is a meaningful place to us since it’s where we first met. A week before I included some very close friends and family in on my plan, especially those that would have to make travel plans. Two days before I let more friends in on the idea, hoping that giving them such short notice would help make sure no one would slip about the surprise. A couple that we are good friends with helped me out from the beginning.
Originally, I was going to meet Sarah after work and have her help me pick out a suit before meeting our friends, Justin and Lisa for a bite to eat (an excuse to go to village pointe) and then propose. However, a few days before the proposal, Sarah found out she would be getting off a few hours early from work. It took a little bit of planning to come up with a plan B but we managed. Lisa ended up asking Sarah to go shopping with her for a bit after work as she was having trouble finding a gift for her boyfriend (this helped keep her occupied for about an hour and a half before the proposal).
