NAME: Joni Busch
NAME: Jason Watson
How old are you? Your fiancée? I am 24 and Jason is 34.
What do you do for a living? Your fiancée? I am a Restaurant Manager/Weight Watchers Leader/Floral Designer (seriously I do all those things!). Jason is a DeKalb Police Officer.
How did the two of you meet? It was February 9, 2008. We met behind the restaurant where I work. He was out back looking through a dumpster for a stolen purse and I was leaving the building to go home. (Yes...he was dumpster-diving) I asked if he would like to watch our video cameras to see if we could see anyone with the purse. He said yes, and then we got to talking.
How long have you been dating? We have been dating since March 1, 2008. So, almost 10 months!
When and how were you engaged? We were engaged on October 1, 2008. He was working the midnight shift. It was a Wednesday afternoon and I was at work. One of the cooks said my boyfriend was there and I was like, yeah whatever, thinking he was joking. Then a waitress said Jason is here. I was really confused but walked out front and sure enough he was sitting there at the counter. He was supposed to be at home sleeping so I was like, What are you doing? Then he got up and walked behind the counter near the register (where he asked me out for the first time!) and said it had been 7 months to the day since he asked me out and now he had another question for me. He then struggled to get the ring box out of his pocket and then popped it open. I was speechless but eventually said yes!
Do you have a wedding date set? If so, what is the date? Yes, May 15, 2009 but April 4, 2009 would be even better!!
Why do you think it would be fun to get married on the ice? I am not your traditional bride or at least I like to think of myself as being different. It would be such a unique way to get married and no one would ever forget it!!
Why should you win this contest? We should win this contest because we are both very giving people and do as much as we can for others. Jason is an incredibly hard-worker (as I am) and this would just take an incredible load off of our shoulders to know that our wedding is taken care of. It would be one for the good guys!
Describe each other's personality. Jason says that my personality is energetic, fun-loving, caring, wonderful, smart, outgoing, and passionate. I say that his personality is fun, adventurous, bright, happy-go-lucky, goofy, real, and perfect.
What are your hobbies? And your fiancée's? In my spare time (which isn't a whole lot honestly), I love doing anything with Jason. Particularly just relaxing and watching movies, reading, learning to cook, and spending time with our families. Jason is exactly the same, but he already knows how to cook and he is also really into tractors and fixing things/home improvement. Right now he is even restoring an old truck!
What is the most outrageous thing you and your fiancée have done? Got engaged after 7 months of dating!!
What is the most outrageous thing you would do to win this wedding? You name it and we'll do it! We are not shy!!
Tell us something unusual about you as a couple. I don't know if this counts, but we figured out that our grandfathers worked together back in the 70's. If it doesn't count, then how about this: We truly believe that we are different and we will be in love forever. Everyone else tells us that we are unusual.
Which of these most closely describes you? I'm the goalie; I don't let anyone or anything get close to what's important to me. I'm the rabid fan; I love my team and am never afraid to show it!

Imagine yourself at a wedding reception. Which one is you? I'm the Mother of the Bride; I can't stop crying!
