How We Met
Wasif and I met 6 years ago at my cousin’s wedding in Atlanta, Georgia. At that time I was 22 and not looking for anything serious, but the first time I saw Wasif it was love at first sight and I knew he was going to be my husband. Being in a long-distance relationship hasn’t been the easiest for the past 6 years but knowing the love we share with one another was so strong there wasn’t any way I could let him go.
How They Asked
Our first year of dating, Wasif came to visit me in NYC and we had our first date on 230 Fifth rooftop bar. I wanted to show him the incredible views that outlined the city. Just about 5 years later, Without me knowing, Wasif drove all the way from Georgia with his family to surprise me at this very spot that I was supposed to be having a sister’s day with. Having our own girly time, I saw Wasif walking with flowers and to my eyes, I was so shocked to see my boyfriend of 5 years who I hadn’t seen for a couple of months then, was right in front of my eyes asking me to marry him!
