Hillary and Michael

How We Met

We met and dated in 8th grade, believe it or not! 12 years later reconnected on (what other than) Instagram, of course. Michael then decided to book a flight to visit me in Massachusetts. We have been in love ever since! We dated for 1.5 years long distance and then I moved to California where we continued our relationship.

How They Asked

On our 3rd year anniversary, Michael proposed at Il Fornaio in Irvine CA. After dinner but before dessert, I opened a gift from him (we weren’t supposed to get each other gifts) it was in a box, in a bag and not the typical ring box you’d expect! He got down on one knee next to the table and asked me to marry him. And of course I said yes!
