Michelle Langford of Citrus Heights and Josh Paul of Rocklin have announced their plans to marry.
Michelle Langford, daughter of Michael and Gina Langford of Auburn, graduated from Forest Lake Christian in 2002 and graduated from Fresno State in 2006.
Josh Paul, son of John and Shelley Paul of Sacramento, graduated from Victory Christian in 2002 and graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University in 2006.
Last spring, Michelle drudgingly traveled to New York City for a conference.
To cheer her up, Josh offered to fly out with her and spend a few days before the conference began to explore the city. Several days later, Michelle said goodbye to Josh, who she believed to be returning to California that night.
The following day, Michelle got a phone call from her aunt, who lives in the city, asking to meet at the Boat House in Central Park for dinner. When Michelle arrived, Josh was playing The Beatle’s “Michelle” on a guitar amplified through the entire restaurant. When he finished playing, he put down the guitar and took Michelle’s hands, kneeling down on one knee. When he stood up, both were crying with tears of joy as he put the ring on her finger!
The couple is scheduled to marry on June 4, 2011.
