Amy and Rodrigo

How We Met: It was always love- I was just too blind to see. That is exactly how my story goes. My fiance and I met in middle school and have been best friends for 10 years before we started dating. He always wanted more than friendship and I always said “No, No, No..”. He never once gave up on me. Then the night of his birthday four years ago, I finally realized the love of my life has literally been right in front of me all along! I couldn’t believe that my true best friend for all of these years could maybe one day be my husband…

How He Asked: My night could not have been more normal. We had plans to go to New York the night of December 27th, 2014 with his cousin and her husband. We went to Long Island City for a nice Greek dinner. We then went to a beautiful cafe to have dessert and coffee. After that, we went to visit a friend who had an amazing view of the NYC skyline from his apartment. My now fiance, asked me if I wanted to take a walk on the pier so we could enjoy the view. It was a beautiful December night and as we were walking I had told him I wanted to take a picture together because the view was absolutely breathtaking. So of course, I’m fixing my hair getting ready for his cousin to take a picture of us and just as I turn to my left he is on one knee telling me how much he loves me and asks if I will marry him!! I was in absolute shock! I obviously said YES! but I felt like I was dreaming, and I had to ask him three more times if I said Yes because I just wanted to make sure. I started crying because I have never been so happy in my entire life. My normal night out with family turned into the most amazing life-changing night of my life.
