BONNEY LAKE, Wash. — For Colin Donnelly of Bonney Lake, a chance encounter at work led to a lifetime of love.
He was a firefighter; she, an EMT. They were engaged over Christmas 2011 and planned a wedding for the following August.
"We just wanted to have a really good party," Donnelly said.
The couple found a waterfront venue, picked some summer colors, and sought advice in choosing a disc jockey. Friends were getting married around the same time and had just signed with a DJ in nearby Graham, Donnelly said, and so he and his fiancée, Megan, looked into a similar package from the same company.
"We were looking for somebody to emcee the event, help us run a timeline, and just play music that would lend itself to having a good time," said Donnelly. "We were looking for something pretty simple."
The Donnellys signed with DJ Sandman, a Graham company, paying about $600 up front for an evening of music and a personal emcee, according to an email exchange. The duo picked a song list, a first dance, and sent a program to the company, and expected the final details to be hammered out in few weeks leading up to the wedding.
