About the Team


How_He_Asked-43Hi, I’m Stacy Tasman Stahl! I started HowHeAsked after a dear friend of mine got engaged. I felt blessed to be a part of the proposal and honestly couldn’t tell you who was more swept up in the emotion – my newly engaged girlfriend or my [extremely mushy] self. Thus, HowHeAsked.com began. I’m a storyteller myself and unstoppably inquisitive. I love all things real, passionate, and energetic, and when life gives me lemons – I build a lemonade stand. I live in New York City, am a University of Florida graduate, and I’m lucky to have traveled through some of the world’s most beautiful countries over the past few years. Most importantly, I get to know extremely excited women and help them share the most amazing story of their life with their friends, family, and all the love-addicted readers of HowHeAsked. And yes, I cry reading every single one.

Hey guys! I’m Madison Bonnette, the social media and assistant editor for HowHeAsked. I love all things romantic, and was a long-time fan of HowHeAsked before joining the team a year and a half ago. I live in Houston, so this is kind of a long-distance relationship (but more fun that way!). In my spare time, I like to knit, read, write, and snuggle with my pet bunny, Coco. I’m looking forward to reading and sharing your proposal stories, and possibly having some of Stacy’s lemonade (I hear it’s pretty good!). You can reach me at Madison@HowHeAsked.com!
