How We Met
Mark and I matched on Bumble. However, we soon found out we have countless mutual friends and connections. It’s crazy we never met sooner!
How They Asked
Mark set up a date for us to go ice skating at Frog Pond in the early afternoon, before we went to holiday parties that night. When we were parking and walking through the park to get to the rink, he kept texting on his phone and I grew increasingly more annoyed, so I started walking ahead of him in protest. As we rounded the corner of the rink he shouted “Molly!” and when I turned around he was on one knee. I wish I could remember everything he said in that moment, but I blacked out in pure joy! When I finally remembered to say yes and look up, I saw that one of his best friends had been videotaping the whole proposal through the trees and was there to take pictures. At that point, Mark dropped the next surprise that our families were waiting for us to celebrate over lunch. Once we finished up, that’s when he let me in on the final surprise, that after we stopped by our family holiday party, he had rented out a bar to celebrate with all of our friends! Mark truly left me speechless with the perfect Christmas proposal.
