How We Met

We interned together at Dick’s Sporting Goods the summer of 2014, before going back to our respective colleges for senior year. When we accepted full-time jobs for post-graduation, we unknowingly chose the same start date and the rest is history!

How They Asked

I thought we were surprising my parents for Thanksgiving. Since we usually go to Jeff’s family’s house for this holiday, my parents had no idea we’d be making the trip up to Buffalo instead (which was actually Jeff’s idea, with his reasoning be we haven’t been able to see them with COVID). Little did I know, Jeff, my parents, and my siblings were all in on a different surprise. As we got up to the front door of my childhood home (in the rain!), Jeff pulled my hand back and got down on one knee. My brother was there taking pictures of the moment and my sweet, overly joyous mother was in the window watching- accidentally captured in every proposal photo! I am so excited to be marrying my best friend and even more excited that he knew how important it was to have my family there and to be somewhere meaningful.
