A storybook romance began during the holiday season on Saturday, December 29, 2012 when Marlantheis called Andrea after mutual acquaintances suggested they would be perfect for one another, and that they should meet. Marlantheis called to introduce himself with a confident voice that caught Andrea's attention. This warm conversation led to countless others, and soon the two decided to meet in person at Crown Center right after New Year's on January 3, 2013. What followed were many delightful outings together as Marlantheis and Andrea drew closer together, which eventually blossomed into a beautiful courtship.
The couple became engaged on September 6, 2013 when Marlantheis proposed by asking, "Will you marry me?" just as Andrea was eating her vanilla bean cheesecake. Her response, "Absolutely!"
The showstopper was a dazzling sapphire and diamond ring commemorating their September birthstone. Marlantheis and Andrea were married in December of 2013 just one year after Marlantheis called for the first time. Their Holiday Sparkle wedding theme captured the festive celebration of the holiday season...and so their romance continues.
"My wife and I appreciate the personal care and kindness your staff have given to us. We feel at home when we are in your store. May God continue to bless your business as you bless others." Marlantheis
