The Engagement - Saturday, March 6, 2010
This is the story of Hallie Bram and Eric Kogelschatz's engagement. in a few days, Hallie and Eric were going to celebrate their 2-year anniversary. But what Hallie didn't know was that Eric was going to propose. So Eric told Hallie that they were going to create the real Cleveland tourism video in response to the "hastily made cleveland video."
Eric wrote scripts for each of their favorite places in Cleveland and made Hallie read the script at each destination. They had pages and pages of cleveland landmarks on their list, but when they reached the Capitol Theatre in the Gordon Square Arts District, Hallie was going to read a special script:
"The renovated Capitol Theatre is a state-of-the-art all-digital cinema located in the heart of the Gordon Square Arts District and features the best hollywood and independent films. The Capitol Theatre also hosted Cleveland's first TEDx event, TEDxCLE organized by Hallie Bram and Eric Kogelschatz. The Capitol Theatre is also where Hallie and Eric were engaged."
After this, Eric got down on one knee and said:
"Hallie, I love you with my whole heart and will forever. We will share our love with our friends, family and each other for eternity. My love, will you marry me?"
SHE SAID YES!
Hallie's grandmother, Katie Frieder, gave Hallie a diamond that was given to Katie by her husband, Hallie's grandfather, the beloved Merle Frieder, to have in her ring.
Then Hallie and Eric walked out of the main theatre and Hallie's parents, Mark and Sally Bram, and Eric's parents, Bill and Mary Kogelschatz, were waiting to celebrate. Later that afternoon, Hallie and Eric picked out the setting. in the meantime, while the ring is being sized, Eric gave hallie a cherry ring pop! It was a beautiful day and will be a beautiful life.
