How We Met
Alex and I are actually high school sweethearts! I met him when I was a freshman and he was a sophomore.
How They Asked
Over the summer, Alex and I thought about going away for a night or two to Montauk for his graduation weekend. We had just moved into our first apartment and we didn’t plan any big vacation this year so we decided that this would be the perfect little weekend getaway. I also figured this would be the perfect way to celebrate all of the hard work and dedication he’s had to his studies over the last three years – little did I know he had another plan up his sleeve. He had always wanted to propose to me in Montauk because this was were my Dad proposed to Mom.
My parents truly had the most amazing life and marriage and that’s something that Alex and I both hope to have as well. My Dad was such an important person in my life and it truly takes my breath away that my fiancee thought to make this part of their story a part of our story too. We also have been going out there every summer since we started dating, so he also wanted to keep this a tradition for years to come. (And his amazing friend Nick was there to capture it all!)
