how we met
We first connected through a dating app called “HER”. We met for a hike in Schroon Lake, NY for our first date. That day, both of us realized there was something between us. We were both looking for someone to be goofy with, who shared similar interests, and who we had a great connection with. Turns out we matched all of those criteria and more!
how they asked
Neither of us knew who would pop the question first Kristen was initially planning on proposing sometime in February, but since Emily proposed first in January, Kristen moved up her plans. Kristen brought Emily back to a small park in Burlington. Three years prior, and only a few dates in, we sat together on a park bench. While looking at each other and not saying a word, we simultaneously realized how meaningful our new relationship was becoming and the potential we had. Knowing how significant this place meant to us Kristen proposed back at the same park bench. Emily proposed on January 4th, 2020. She took Kristen to a planetarium show that ended up being more than a normal presentation… She had rented out the planetarium for just the two of us and developed a video of pictures/videos of our relationship that played over the planetarium screen to “our song”- Green Lights by Sarah Jarosz. She then surprised me with a hotel stay and reservations at a nice restaurant. When we got to the restaurant, my family and her family were there to surprise us. The entire proposal blew me away!
