How We Met
Luke and I are both from New York. We met at a bar one night out with mutual friends and have been dating for almost 5.5 years!
how they asked
Luke and I were traveling to Charleston on vacation and for a friend’s wedding at Boone Hall. On the first day we arrived, we walked down to the Battery (“to get picked up by a local friend for dinner”) and we sat on a bench in White Point Garden. I had previously mentioned to him that the gazebo was such a romantic spot to get proposed to, but sitting there next to that spot totally went over my head!
At 4:19 pm he said his friend was there to pick us up and he wanted to walk through the gazebo. At 4:20 pm (our anniversary is April 20), he got down on his knee and proposed to me! :) My engagement ring is designed by our friend Mark Terranova from NYC. It is a round diamond with pave diamond band. It is absolutely stunning and exactly what I wanted! After he proposed we took more pictures with Valerie & Co. Photographers then started walking back towards our hotel when he stopped and pulled me into Oak Steakhouse for a surprise engagement dinner!
After dinner, he surprised me again with a moonlight sailboat cruise around the Harbor. It was such a beautiful and special day.
