Ellie and Chris

how we met

We met on an online dating app called Coffee meets Bagel:) I was struck by his kind smile and kind eyes.

how they asked

It was a total surprise to me! He proposed to me the morning after I graduated with my Master’s! About a year earlier, I told him I didn’t want to get engaged until I had finished my Master’s degree. He wasted no time! He was so stressed the night before he proposed, that at my graduation dinner I actually thought something was wrong. I actually thought he was mad at me! Little did I know, he was having to change the location of the proposal because it was supposed to rain the next day. We had planned to go for a run in the morning. He came and picked me up and we drove to Balboa Park (one of the places we run all the time and have so many special memories). We didn’t get a quarter of a mile in before he stopped and took me up the steps of the Natural History museum. I saw yellow roses and a card. At that point I definitely knew what was happening. Couldn’t say yes fast enough:)

Special Thanks
