How We Met

Dave & I met during college through mutual friends! Our friendship quickly developed into more through our shared love for food, lifting & traveling. My favorite thing about our relationship is that we’re pretty much opposites! From Myers Briggs and Enneagram types to how we process and communicate, we are naturally very different. But what I cherish about that is I’ve truly learned how to love a person through loving Dave. We are stronger because our differences help us to stay open-minded with each other and those around us and it’s taught us the ability to love with grace and patience.

How They Asked

Dave proposed last Tuesday on the same day we picked up our new puppy Coti, a mini bernedoodle that we LOVE so much already. After picking up our Coti we stopped by a park in Hamilton, NJ to take pics.

After walking around, we passed a gazebo and he dropped on one knee to ask the big question! Our good friend Rob popped up from behind the bushes to capture the sweet moment. Little did I know the surprises didn’t end there… before heading back to his house he had coordinated FaceTime calls with two of my best friends who are currently halfway across the country & around the world.

In doing so he was also able to stall time because a bunch of our closest friends & family were at his house getting ready to surprise me with a party! It was so sweet to see dear friends especially coming out of a few months of lockdown. I couldn’t have imagined a better proposal than one that included a puppy & celebration with everyone I love!
