Leah and Joseph

Leah's Proposal in Brooklyn Bridge

How We Met

Joe and I met as juniors in high school, but we’ve each had crushes on one other as early as 8th grade. He was neighbors with my cousins and I always played it cool and never let anyone know how much I loved him haha! (Although my mom will tell you she used to catch me writing “Leah Catalina” in my notebooks) We had a mutual friend who ended up giving Joe my number at a party over the summer before junior year. He texted me the following day and we’ve be inseparable ever since. We have since gotten engaged, moved in together and are planning our future. It’s been the best 9+ years of my life and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us 🤗

How They Asked

Joe and I go to New York City every year around Christmas time to visit Rockefeller Center and Bryant Park, but I’ve ALWAYS wanted to go to Brooklyn. My fiancé and his best friend planned a trip to a Christmas market, but first wanted to check out the Brooklyn bridge. The sun was setting and there was an amazing panoramic view of the city. We took pictures of his friend and his girlfriend, and they offered to take ours. That’s when he got down on one knee! I was so surprised and I never saw it coming! Which is exactly what I’ve always wanted (because it is so hard to catch me off guard) It was truly the best day of my life. We’ve been together since we were juniors in high school and it was absolutely worth the wait 💕
