Alex and Elisha's Movie Theater Proposal

Movie Theater Proposal (1)

How We Met

Alex started school in NYU. Elisha was hanging out in the village with his friends, forming a band called Zusha. The two met in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, on a student Chabad NYU Shabbat weekend. Elisha would start calling Alex daily, just to say hi. They started video-chatting regularly. From friends to best friends to great friends to boyfriend and girlfriend. We’ve been together for two years and we are ready to begin our lives together as a family and build a home with one heart and one soul.

Movie Theater Proposal (7)

how they asked

This past Sunday I proposed to my beloved mamasita Alexandria Ariel. She said YES!!!

Her sweet sister Hadassa led her to Cinema Village, under the impression they were just seeing a movie, when all of a sudden during the opening trailers, my face (and hers) appeared on the big screen and suddenly I’m dancing around the city.

Each location is a significant place in the story of us, from Washington Heights and the East Village, to DUMBO and 770 Eastern Parkway, our first date.
