How We Met
It’s actually really funny how we met. A friend in my sorority In Philly knew I would be part of her sorority family before I did and was showing Jon, one of her close friends, pictures of me, saying “isn’t she cute? Say she’s cute.”
Apparently, she was relentless until Jon said that I was cute… at which point her response was, “Don’t even think about it.” Clearly, that didn’t work. A few months later, January 17th, 2014, we were at the same Greek life event and talked pretty much the entire time. We’ve been together, a little over 5.5 years, ever since.
How They Asked
He proposed in Harrisburg, PA on February 9th, 2019. I actually went to dinner with my parents and little brother to Bricco, a really nice pizzeria and Italian bistro for a belated birthday dinner. He surprised me, with a cake with the question on it and with his parents, and asked me to marry him. Actually, I answered him (of course I will!) before he even got the chance to ask!
Aishah Aslam Photography helped us celebrate and capture moments of our engagement in Drexel, PA where we first met. We started off the session at the frat house which Jon was a member of: Lambda Chi Alpha.
We finished off the night on Broad Street where we had a Holi color powder “fight”
