How We Met

I first laid eyes on Lee downtown Chicago when the both of us were out with our friends. She was the prettiest girl I ever saw. We immediately ‘hit it off’ and it had felt like we had known each other for years. The night was filled with laughter, and I even asked to hold her hand. We then exchanged numbers, and I texted her first thing the following morning to line up a date.

how they asked

I surprised Lee with a carriage ride downtown Chicago on a beautiful late July day. Along the way, we stopped by an elegant gazebo surrounded by rose bushes. Ahead of time, I had also lined up a photographer to be there to capture the special moment. when I got on one knee, she repeatedly said ‘Yes!’ followed by a few tears of happiness.
