Like Never Before

Diane & Ben Glubo
First Date:
March 23, 2013
Wedding Date:
Oct. 12, 2014
Sheraton Towson Hotel
Favorite Activity:
Attending Orioles games

When Benjamin Glubo set out to plan his proposal to Diane Levy, he knew it had to be something she’d never forget.

Diane loved dolphins, but the National Aquarium was too expensive. He considered a hot-air balloon ride with writing on a field, but that, too, was costly.

Instead, he planned a creative scavenger hunt.

The day in October 2013 started with the gift of a journey necklace, a series of graduating diamonds that symbolizes their journey and the notion that the smallest things in life matter most. Ben told Diane that
the gift started the journey, and he then departed, leaving Diane in the capable hands of her sister, Rachel Levy.

The timed scavenger hunt featured 11 clues, the first few delivered at their Pikesville home in a picture from their first Ocean City trip and others under a keyboard and under
a couch.

From there, Diane headed to Jilly’s, where she found a clue under the barstool she occupied on their first date. Then, at Raimondi’s, she found truffles and a Ravens football.

After trips to Barnes & Noble and Home Depot, she found herself at her old townhome, where she shut the door for the last time and opened the door to her new life. Onto his parents’ Pikesville home, where
she viewed a caricature of herself as Rapunzel with Ben climbing up her hair with a ring. Joseph and Lynne Levy and Steve and Lori Glubo watched as she went upstairs to look out a window, but she then ran back down and out the door. Diane found rose petals leading to the gazebo, where Ben was waiting with a ring.

It took about five minutes before Diane could say yes through her tears.

“It really proved to me how much he loved me and how special he wanted to make it,” said Diane, 33, a senior business analyst for CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield. “It was more than I could ever imagine.”

They met in January 2013, following a connection on JDate, at Jilly’s.

“I knew the moment she walked in that she was the girl I was going to marry,” said Ben, 35, a mechanic with the DC Metro. “It was just a feeling.”

The conversation flowed; there was no awkward silence. They felt like old friends who hadn’t seen each other in ages. And Ben found himself unusually talkative.

After about five hours, they kissed goodnight. They spoke the next morning and saw each other weekly, professing their love within six weeks. In July, Ben moved to the day shift, and they saw each other almost daily.

They were married Oct. 12, 2014 at the Sheraton Baltimore North Hotel with Rabbi Stan Levin officiating. They shared a first look beforehand, and their smiles lit up the courtyard, just as it did during the ceremony, witnessed by 150 friends and family members.

“We have many mutual friends and acquaintances, but we never met until it was time for us to meet,” said Diane.

“It’s an indescribable feeling that I can’t put words to,” said Ben. “I never felt like this before.”
