How They Met: His reggae band was playing at a private party at which she was a guest. Later, he struck up a conversation with a 3-year-old girl who’d been watching. “I liked how he was not only great with kids, but he related to them as well,” Abigail says.
First Date: His place — he cooked her a steak dinner.
How He Proposed: In Florence, Italy. “Our hotel had double-booked us, and our train tickets were wrong. It was hot, she was in a crabby mood, and the hair dryer in our hotel room sucked up her hair and I had to cut it out.” He proposed anyway, because “sometimes you have to turn lemons into limoncello.”
Most-Hated Clothing Item: “Her maxi dress, which is really just a muumuu.”
