How We Met
Frank & I met right after I graduated high school. We have been together for 8 years. We started dating right before the creation of my cosmetic line Alexa Persico Cosmetics. He has been my biggest fan and supporter ever since.
how they asked
This was our second time staying at Gurney’s in Montauk, we love the scenery and ambiance. He had booked this trip as a gift for my birthday since he knew how much I loved going the year prior. Of course, I had hopes he would propose but with so much going on with work It wasn’t at the forefront of my mind. The first day we arrived ironically there was a beautiful wedding taking place that we got to watch from the beach. After 4 much needed relaxing days, I certainly didn’t think a proposal was coming on the 5th and final day of our stay.
Around 7 pm on Thursday Night we took a walk on the beach before going to dinner as the sun was setting. As we neared the water and started to slow up he turned, got down on one knee and popped the question! I was definitely very surprised and had the biggest smile on my face. I thought for sure I would have known, but he kept everything under wraps very well. I couldn’t have imagined a better ending to this trip and am still on cloud 9!
