Thomas and Miraya

How We Met

We met on Bumble! Can you believe it? We spoke for a few days via telephone then finally agreed to meet for drinks one day. The rest is history.

How They Asked

Thomas knows how important it was that my loved ones knew and could be a pet of this experience with us if possible. It just so happened that my best friend and his best friend were coming into town to celebrate NYE 2020 with us. We had dinner reservations, a ballroom gala to attend, the whole nine. So of course, it being a holiday and close friends in town I had to dress up. Thomas’s best friend is also a professional photographer, which was perfect for planning. Thomas told me he wanted us to all go take some photos before dinner since we all looked so nice. It made sense to me and I was clueless as to what he really had planned.

So we all get ready and head to “take photos”. Little did I know he was taking me to the proposal spot where we had one of our first dates and also where he met my family for the first time. His best friend played along and took a few normal photos of us. Then, “BAM”, I turn around and the love of my life is on one knee, telling me how much he loves me and doesn’t want to go into the new year with committing his life to me and asked me to marry him. I was so overjoyed! It was truly magical and perfect in every way.

Special Thanks
