Veronique and Chris

How We Met

Well to begin, I knew Chris’s brother, Tony, from school. But, I never knew that Tony had brothers. Tony moved back to New Jersey. While I was at a friends house in florida, I saw a guy that looked just like Tony! So I texted Tony and told him, and he told me to take a picture of him saying that it was his brother. I felt weird taking a picture of someone I didn’t know and never met, but I ended up taking a picture of him sending it to Tony (who is in NJ). Then, Tony sent the picture to Chris. So now, Chris has received a picture of himself from his brother in another state, and he found out that I took it! I unintentionally looked so creepy lol, but we ended up talking a lot that night. A few nights later, I was at a party and saw Chris, and we started talking again. He took my phone, and texted himself from my phone to get my number. And now here we are 5 years later! All from a creepy picture I took haha.

How They Asked

The proposal needed a lot of planning because Chris and a lot of his friends were all coming from New Jersey. My best friend was getting married at the time, and she was looking for a location to do her engagement pictures in. She told me were going to go to a park to see if it would be nice for her pictures. So we’re walking around and I saw a pretty spot in the park so I took a picture of it to show her. As I took the picture and put my phone down, Chris was standing there. He was in the park the whole time hiding behind a tree. Ashley of course was using her “engagement pictures” as a distraction for me. He flew down all the way from New Jersey with his family and friends, everyone was hiding on the side to surprise me. It was absolutely beautiful!
