Michela and Brenton

How We Met

Brenton and I met just over two years ago on bumble. He was the first swipe and only date that I went on using the app. It’s hard to believe that we would have never crossed paths if it weren’t for Bumble. As it turns out, while Brenton and I were visiting Tanzania, he had contacted bumble and pitched the idea of them getting involved in the proposal.

I’m not sure he expected such an elaborate scenario, but I was totally and completely shocked that he pulled this off. We pulled up to what seemed like a pretty desolate area of Williamsburg for a “coworkers holiday party”…There wasn’t a single person in sight.

When we walked in, it was a winterland, just gorgeous, and all of sudden my childhood best friend comes running out of nowhere. I was in the middle of massive snowball fight with our entire family and all of our closest friends, INSIDE. I couldn’t stop screaming….i was so excited, snow was falling from the ceiling, I knew right then and there he was going to ask me to marry him.
