JaNae Lewis of Riverton, Utah and Philip Salko of Carbondale, Pennsylvania are set to wed in the Spring of 2018.
How We Met
We worked together at the University of Utah; him for his fellowship in sports medicine and I as a medical assistant. Our second date was a spontaneous road trip from New Mexico to Tennessee before I had to fly back home to Utah and he continued on to Rhode Island to start his practice. After a year and a half of long distance dating, I moved out to Rhode Island.
Our Proposal Story
Phil coordinated with my parents, brothers and sister a surprise at my family cabin. I was in town for my younger sister’s graduation under the impression that Phil couldn’t make it due to work obligations; little did I know he was at my family cabin setting up a lunch complete with music (our songs) a musical performance by my older brother, roles for my family to be involved and, in a nod to how my father proposed to my mother, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with jello. It was perfect and I cried from the second he stepped out the door.
