How They Asked
On a weekend trip to NYC, I planned for us to see a Broadway show. My fiancé knows that NYC is my favorite city and our first trip together. My fiancé Ben, planned the proposal with me none the wiser. The morning after we saw the show, we planned to meet up with a friend of his at one of the delicious Brooklyn bagel shops. On the walk from our hotel, we passed the steps of the James Paley post office, the site where we took our first photo together, five years prior. Whenever we pass these steps we usually sit and reminisce for a bit, and so we did. But this time, as I stood to get up from sitting on the steps, Ben dropped to his knee and proposed.
And as for his friend that was set to meet at the bagel shop, Ben had him planted outside in disguise the whole time, photographing the entire proposal.
