How We Met
I met Mike at work seven years ago and we hit it off when we started talking about music. Once we realized how much we had in common it turned into a game to see who could recommend new artists to the other. Ever since then we’ve been together.
how they asked
Our relationship started over music and we have been to countless amazing shows at The House of Blues in Boston. We were seeing the anniversary concert of one of the bands we first bonded over, Mayday Parade, when he surprised me with a stay at The Verb Hotel, a music themed hotel nearby. After the show ended we walked out of the venue and my cousin/best friend and her boyfriend were waiting across the street. He asked her to take a picture of us with the House of Blues sign in the background. As we posed he opened the ring box around my shoulder. I saw it out of the corner of my eye and immediately turned to him with tears in my eyes. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was the perfect proposal and even more special that he was able to involve my best friend in the process.
