Autumn and Mary
How We Met
We met in college at the first rugby practice of the season. What started as friendly competition during sprints around the field evolved into a wonderful friendship. Before we knew it, we were in love!
How They Asked
We both wanted a ring but Autumn wanted to be surprised – luckily Mary enjoys grand romantic gestures, though not so much surprises. Mary invited their families from out of town to celebrate with them. She just barely managed to maintain the surprise long enough to propose in a beautiful Brooklyn park with the Manhattan skyline as a backdrop. Autumn planned ahead and had the ring for Mary on hand. She proposed in front of their families, a delivery guy, and some garbage bags outside of the restaurant afterwards.
