It was July 4th weekend of 2009.
Gordon took Dea to Sea Island to celebrate the weekend with his family.
And to ask Dea to marry him.
His sister, conveniently decided to be late for dinner so Gordon grabbed a bottle of Champagne and headed to the Spanish Room at the Cloisters, with Dea on his arms.
There he had a photographer stashed away for the big moment.
He got on his knees. Dea was totally surprised. She said yes.
