How We Met
Lou & I met 4 years ago in a modern way, chatting on a dating app. He was watching football and I was watching Drag Race on a Thursday night in September, and we hit it off talking about how we both loved both! We went on our first real date the next day and have been driving each other crazy ever since!
How They Asked
To celebrate our 4th Anniversary, we had planned a long weekend trip to Fire Island (hands down our favorite place in the world) along with a few friends. The first surprise of the day was arriving at the ferry out to the island and finding another couple of our best friends (who live in another state) were there to come along!
After settling into our hotel, our friends suggested pictures out on the dock before we went to lunch. After Lou & I posed for a few, he turned to me and launched into a beautiful speech from the movie THE OLD GUARD, which we had just watched and fallen in love with a few weeks prior. About halfway through I realized what was about to happen and the waterworks started. He got down on one knee and I couldn’t say yes fast enough!
The rest of the night included more happy as hell tears, lots of champagne, calls/texts to everyone we know, AND even more friends showing up on the island to surprise me. It all was a moment & a trip I’ll never forget! Now our favorite place to go every summer will always have an even more special place in our lives and in our love story!
