Janine and Gabriel

How We Met

5 years ago, I was working as a barista at Starbucks and he worked at the bank next door. I was his customer and he was mine. On February 16, 2015, he walked into Starbucks as my shift was ending and asked me out for dinner. I said yes, excitedly and wasn’t sure where things were really headed. 5 years later, I’m saying yes again and this time it’s to marry the man of my dreams.

How They Asked

We walked, hand in hand, around Madison Square Park and wasn’t suspecting a thing. As we approached the fountain, we saw two very cute golden retrievers playing and I was easily excited as I love dogs and especially that breed. As I watched the dogs, I noticed my photographer friend from my peripheral view but already in front me was my (then) bf, (now) fiancé on one knee. He had the ring in front of me asking: “will you marry me?”
