Linda Park, an e-commerce merchandise planner for the Zale Corporation, and Richard Lyons, an interactive marketing manager for the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, both attended the University of Texas and both studied advertising, but it wasn’t until after graduation that they actually met. The two crossed paths at a birthday party where Richard spent the entire night trying to woo Linda. He must have played his cards right, because soon after, they became a couple. A year and a half later, Richard decided to ask his girlfriend to spend the rest of her life with him. He planned an elaborate scheme and collaborated with Linda’s boss to have her believe that she had to attend a work event at her favorite restaurant. Upon arriving, Linda was escorted to the restaurant’s private wine room where there was a red ribbon hanging from the doorway. Attached to it was a card that said “follow the ribbon and take a trip down memory lane.” The ribbon led his sweetheart to six different tables, each of which held a memento and a personal poem. When Linda got to the last table the final note instructed her to turn around – and Richard was standing there with a ring! The couple will be married at the Fashion Industry Gallery on November 5, 2011. –Maggie Ashworth
