Allie and Chris

How We Met

It was our last Friday night before winter break at Central Connecticut State University, ladies night at the college bar. My friend Kaitlin introduces me to Christopher wearing a woman’s Christmas sweater. He had me laughing all night, my phone had died and I needed to call a cab home, I used his phone with one condition to give him my number. He took me out to dinner the next Friday.

By the end of Christmas break we knew we were inseparable.

How He Asked

Chris and I planned to visit friends in London for my first trip to Europe. Paris was a childhood dream to visit. A short trip to Paris on the way home turned into a dream!

We landed at Heathrow late and rushed to the hotel. I wanted to nap and Christopher has me rush out the door. We took a cab to Pont de Bir-Hakeim. I was confused we walked up and down the bridge 4 times then he paused knelt on one knee and said, “I talked to your dad, he said it was more than okay to ask you this question….” In complete shock I said yes! Suddenly a photographer walked up to us, it was all planned! We finished the proposal with a photoshoot by the Eiffel Tower my heart is so full.
