Jason and Dana met at the Wilmington Island United Methodist youth group. They both attended for several years and were “set up” by two good friends their senior year of high school. They dated for a short time while Dana went off to college and Jason stayed in Savannah. These two lovebirds continued to talk everyday and see one another when Dana would come home. As time passed, Jason decided to join the United States Marine Corps in 2011. Again, they kept in close contact for the entire 3 months of boot-camp. After Jason’s boot-camp graduation, they began dating again and have been together ever since.
THE PROPOSAL Jason was home for two weeks visiting from where he was stationed. One evening, Jason arranged for the two of them to attend a baseball game and then go downtown Savannah to Rocks on the Roof at the Bohemian Hotel. Jason insisted that Dana sit at a table on the other side of the building all by herself while he got them a drink. When he came back, he got on one knee and proposed. He wasn’t planning on proposing until later in his trip home but a young man in love just couldn’t wait to pop the question. She said “yes”.
