Oh, this is a date? Over 10 years ago, by accident or fate, Todd and Melanie crossed lives. "Where is a good place to have lunch?" a computer IT contractor asked the office manager of a downtown Tampa law firm, completely and honestly lost in the bustling city of Tampa. Over 10 years later they "ran" into each other on a dating app -Hinge. "WHAT HAPPENED" Melanie messaged Todd, excited to even know someone real on the app, and a brunch later they were inseparable. Learning they both had a passion for music, theatre and life, they had a real and special connection.
COVID has some amazing and crazy plans. For SIX MONTHS, Todd held on to the ring. Realizing the unknown of the pandemic, he couldn't hold back anymore and ran with a sneaky yet brilliant idea for the proposal. During an online fundraiser event, Melanie and Todd performed "Love Is An Open Door" from Disney's Frozen LIVE. Melanie was worried that the final line of the song "Will you marry me" would be misleading to her friends and family watching and they both agreed to change it to something else. Todd had other plans. He tucked the ring box in the chair behind him and they started the live performance with the final line approaching. Then to Melanie's surprise and initial disbelief he didn't mess up the performance, Todd knelt down on one knee and as the final phrase goes - the question was popped and the rest is love. To watch the moment for yourself, here is the recording of when it was live! https://www.facebook.com/5004080/videos/10111173815286441/
