How We Met
Despite going to the same college and in the same year at Quinnipiac University, we never met but knew of each other and had lots of mutual friends. About a year after graduation when we both were working in NYC, I (Cassie) was posting photos of myself with my friend’s new puppy so Kenny made his move reaching out to me via Instagram asking if he could meet the puppy sometime and take me out on a date. I pretended the puppy was mine for a coupleweeks after our first date but we were already pretty inseparable.
How They Asked
It was my birthday weekend and he made plans for us to go check out The Edge on the top of Hudson Yards. He walked out of the bedroom dressed in a brand new outfit so I knew something was up, so I followed his cue and made sure to dress up a little bit too. When we made it up to the top of The Edge, we walked around and took in the sights. Little did I know, he was stalling because the photographer he hired was running late! Finally he took me the corner with the best view and got down on one knee to ask. There were about 200 people up who immediately turned to watch us and they all cheered and clapped when I said yes. After, we enjoyed a bottle of champagne courtesy of The Edge and had a moment before Kenny brought me back to Hoboken for a surprise party with all of our friends!
