how we met
We first met in January 2016 during the beginning of Jessica’s three year secondment in Frankfurt, Germany, where Malte had also just recently moved to from Hamburg.
how they asked
Malte planned a romantic picnic at Gas Works Park overseeing Lake Union during one of his visits to Seattle. Unfortunately, it ended up pouring down rain (typical for Seattle in September though) when Malte proposed. The good thing was, that due to the rain, Gas Works Park was empty and we got to enjoy this private moment all to ourselves. We had Rosé Champagne with strawberries to toast and then decided to take a literal “rain check” on the picnic and went up the hill afterwards for the famous chicken at Ezell’s (a must in Seattle).
