How We Met
We met in high school in chorus class, and were acquaintances for a while. We became good friends during our school’s musical production of “Beauty and the Beast” which we were both cast in. He asked me to prom my senior year (his jr) and we have been a couple ever since!
how they asked
On Thursday, June 11th Andy texted me towards the end of the work day and asked if I wanted to grab a drink after work. We had both had busy, stressful weeks and could use the break, so I said yes.
When we finished our drinks, we had about an hour and a half until our next train out of the city, so Andy suggested we take a walk on the Boston Common and Public Garden since it was so gorgeous out. We came around a bend near the swan boats and his two friends from his college a capella group “Mental Note” were there.
All of a sudden the three of them started singing, “In the Still of the Night”, the guys number they used to always sing in college. At the end of it Andy got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! Just one week shy of our 7 year anniversary, my best friend became my fiance!
The best part of it all is that his friends arranged for someone to take a video of the whole thing, so we will have this moment captured on camera for the rest of our lives:
A professional wedding photographer also was just finishing up an engagement shoot nearby when she heard the singing. She ran over and captured the moment right as it was happening! I am beyond thrilled! We are getting married on our 8 year anniversary of dating.
