How We Met

We met in New York City on Instagram when my picture popped up on his following page! He liked my photo and messaged me shortly after, from there we were pretty much inseperable. We went on our first date and danced the night away. After four months we decided to temporarily move to Chicago during the pandemic and we grew closer and closer! We even moved in with my parents and had been living together for over a year.

How They Asked

He proposed on the most beautiful rooftop in New York City with over 16 dozen roses and our song playing in the background. It was the most perfect night, the lights were twinkling, not a cloud in the sky!

I had no idea where I was going or what was happening, but he told me to get ready and had a car waiting for me outside to take me to the rooftop. It was truly magical! After the proposal, we had dinner at STK and he booked my favorite hotel, St. Regis in NYC to spend the evening!
