SIDE BY SIDE
BRITTNEY GRUBERGER & SEAN LAKIN
Brittney Gruberger had just moved in with her new roommate Kim, who invited her along to a family holiday party. She never would have guessed that Kim’s cousin, Sean Lakin, would turn out to be the love of her life. When Sean bought an engagement ring, he called his beloved’s father saying he wanted to pop the question and discuss it with both parents over a meal. “I went into dinner prepared to reassure them about my decision but they were already so enthusiastic that I ended up speeding up the proposal!” Sean exclaims. Soon after, he took his girlfriend out to dinner while his sister secretly set up the house with candles, rose petals, and a bottle of Champagne.
