The first time Michelle saw Irvin was at her kingdom hall. She thought he was cute, but nothing more. Some friends invited her over to their house, and he happened to be there. He was totally working his gray Toms and big black glasses. However, they didn't talk much until a friend invited them over to their house to watch a movie.

Michelle's family planned a trip to the coast to fish for a couple days. During that time Irvin asked Michelle's cousin Tiffany to help him prepare for what he was about to ask his girlfriend. He was understandable nervous trying to hide the ring and trying to figure out how to propose to her. Their evening plan was just to hangout and walk around. They walked downtown and passed the large fountain by the museum and finally ended up at the Corpus Christi beach. As they walked down the shore, Michelle decided to take her shoes off and walk barefoot. In one hand she was holding her best friend, and in the other Irvin's hand. I kid, I kid. In one hand she was holding her shoes, and in the other her best friend's hand. Irvin turned towards her, got on one knee and said....

Susan Michelle & Irvin will be married in September at San Antonio's Granberry Hills. They speak wonders of their gardens, and I can't wait to see it!
