Nelam and Ameer
How We Met
Ameer & I started dating 3 years ago. We both knew very early on that we had found the one – it took us only about 3 weeks. We ended up going on a date in NY the summer we started dating, and he took me to Washington Square Park, which is where he ended up telling me he loved me for the first time. After I quickly said it back we ended up walking around the city for a bit and came across a street billboard that had post-its all over it with different affirmations written. He picked up the one that said “you’re perfect” and handed it to me. I still have it to this day.
How They Asked
Fast forward 2.5 years, we’re going to the city for what I thought was his cousin’s birthday dinner. The two of us decided to walk around the area we were in, which happened to be Washington Square Park. I honestly thought nothing of it; I was so excited to have been back and we began to reminisce about that night years ago. We were standing right in front of the fountain, Ameer saying sweet things and me thinking nothing of it. Before I knew it, he got down on one knee and pulled out a ring. Afterward, he surprised me again with a party with our 50 closest family/friends. It was the most magical, perfect day.
We are so incredibly excited to be getting married, and absolutely cannot wait for next year :)
