About the Team


Hi there! I’m Hannah Nowack, Editor at How They Asked. Love stories make my heart sing and I can’t wait to read yours! Based in Brooklyn, New York, I edit all real couple stories for The Knot and How They Asked, by The Knot.


How_He_Asked-43Hi, I’m Stacy Tasman Stahl! I started HowTheyAsked after a dear friend of mine got engaged. I felt blessed to be a part of the proposal and honestly couldn’t tell you who was more swept up in the emotion – my newly engaged girlfriend or my [extremely mushy] self. Thus, HowTheyAsked.com began. I’m a storyteller myself and unstoppably inquisitive. I love all things real, passionate, and energetic, and when life gives me lemons – I build a lemonade stand. I live in New York City, am a University of Florida graduate, and I’m lucky to have traveled through some of the world’s most beautiful countries over the past few years. Most importantly, I get to know extremely excited women and help them share the most amazing story of their life with their friends, family, and all the love-addicted readers of how they asked. And yes, I cry reading every single one.
