Brianna and Connor
how we met
We met in the dorm room we both lived in our freshmen year of college at Fordham University. We owe a lot to our mutual friend, Danny, who helped set us up!
how they asked
We had been talking about our future and marriage for awhile, so the fact that Conor proposed wasn’t a surprise, but the fact that he did it when he did was! It was December in New York City, where we live together, and we had a date set to go see the tree in Rockefeller Center and then go to this beautiful Mediterranean restaurant right on the water, with a view of the Brooklyn Bridge. After dinner, when we were back at our apartment getting ready for bed, Conor mentioned that our new kitten, Pimm, had gotten tangled in some string. I was completely clueless and bent down to untangle her, commenting on how I didn’t understand how she had managed to get the string tied around her in a perfect knot! Pimm managed to wriggle her way out of the string and there was the ring! It was the perfect proposal because we got to enjoy the moment, just the two of us, without a crowd, before we hoped on the phone to FaceTime everyone!
