How We Met

Bryana and I first met at our old job. She was a new hire and I’ll never forget her walking past me and saying hello for the first time. It was a few months before we formally met. Timing is everything. A week before she quit she had a coworker reach out to me letting me know she was interested. I knew immediately it was her and the rest is history.

We planned a getaway to Oheka Castle in Long Island for my fiancé’s birthday weekend. We have a major telepathic connection to where I can’t hide a frown from her. I chalked my nervous energy she was vibing up to a birthday surprise, which was also true. I called ahead the previous month and had our room upgraded for the big day. I pulled a friendly valet (Jonathan) aside and told him my plan. I pretended we were getting a few nice pictures taken outside by the castle gardens. As we were posing I pulled out the ring and dropped to my knee. Jonathan captured the whole event on video. We couldn’t be more grateful. PS I cried more than she did

Special Thanks

 | Jonathon was our valet/ informal photographer at the castle. I told him my plan and he was more than accommodating. I'm so grateful he went out of his way to make my plan go perfectly.

 | The entire hotel staff was accommodating. They sent up complimentary champagne and over all made us feel like we were in a dream
