Ali and Nick

How We Met: Nick and I met on a study abroad program called Semester at Sea in Fall 2011. I knocked on his door the first day on the ship and he stole my heart since. We got to know each other in the best way possible which is through traveling. By meeting on Semester at Sea, we will able to fall in love all over again in 13 different countries. This picture was taken in Chennai, India and it was exactly when I knew this was the person I was going to marry.

How He Asked: Nick and I love family more than anything! It’s very rare when both of our families can get together since his family lives in Chicago and mine live here in Boston. When Nick’s family was here for a business trip, he was able to arrange a trip for all of us together to go to Newport, RI! He was stressing out about all of us going to the Newport Mansions before dinner.

I didn’t understand why he was so stressed, but we made it work and took 5 pedicabs up a hill for 3 miles to the Mansions. We ended up finding a beautiful grassy hill on the Cliff Walk overlooking the ocean. Nick asked all of our family to stay on the bottom of the hill for us to take a picture of them and once we snapped that picture, he took my phone and put it in his pocket and got down on one knee.
