After meeting online, Jennifer and Chris initally bonded over their love for the San Diego Padres. Many of their initial dates were to Padres games, where they'd spend the games talking and getting to know each other better. So when Chris decided to propose, he knew he wanted to pop the question in the Padres' stadium, Petco Park. The company he worked for at the time sponsored the park and occasionally raffled off tickets to the employees. He never won, but he was able to make Jennifer believe he did — he even sent her a fake confirmation just to get her to the game!
At the top of the fifth inning, a message flashed on the scoreboard as Chris got down on one knee: "Jennifer, I can't wait to come home to you every day. I love you with all of my heart. Will you marry me?" She, of course, said yes!
When it came time to take their engagement photos, they decided to return to the ballpark (with a little help getting through the door from Chris' employer). Check out their gorgeous photos!
