Carolyn and Andrew
How We Met
Carolyn and Andrew met through mutual friends at a birthday party in Asbury Park, New Jersey. A few days later they started dating, then Andrew left with a friend, Jared, for a road trip to Canada (Jared is now their wedding officiant)… Upon his return, their relationship flourished. In January 2015, they took their first big trip together as Carolyn completed her first full marathon in Walt Disney World while Andrew sat in the rain waiting for her to cross the finish line to congratulate her with a rose, hugs and a kiss. Both Andrew and Carolyn have a love for snowboarding and travel. Sports are big in their house; they have common love for the NY Giants and NY Rangers, however baseball has become a rivalry as Carolyn likes the Yankees while Andrew prefers the Mets. They both drive Jeep Wranglers, enjoy visiting local breweries and trying new restaurants together. Andrew, Carolyn and their pets; Italian Greyhound Genevieve and Hedgehog Kingsley live in Asbury Park, where they enjoy what the entire town has to offer. They look forward to all that the future holds for them together.
How He Asked
Andrew and Carolyn had a snowboarding trip planned to Lake Tahoe, NV/CA which they had been looking forward to for months! Andrew decided this was the perfect time to propose so he visited Robert at Bentley Diamonds. The process could not have been any easier. Andrew looked at only one ring and knew it was the one! He planned to ask at the top of Sky Express at Heavenly Mountain as it has the most perfect view. The day came, Tuesday March 1 2016. Andrew made sure to have the ring box hidden in his pocket; They grabbed their gear and headed to the lift… But the weather did not cooperate; 80 mph wind gusts kept the lifts closed for the day. No problem, tomorrows another day! However, the next day did not go as planned either. Carolyn fell and hurt herself while snowboarding that morning. Ski patrol prescribed hot tubs and donuts for the rest of the day. Finally on Thursday March 3, 2016 it happened, and it was perfect! After coincidentally following a couple up the lift in wedding attire, they paused to have their photo taken and Andrew dropped to a knee and surprised Carolyn! She was in tears from excitement. A vacation they will never forget.
