Danielle and Anthony
How We Met: Anthony and I met in college while we were both studying abroad in Florence, Italy. Our Italian love story continued when we moved back home to the states, Anthony back to New York and myself to Massachusetts.
After a year of long distance we decided to take the leap and move in with each other in New York City.
After 3 years of wonderful memories in our NYC apartment the inner traveler in both of us decided it as time for a change. A WARMER, more tropical change. And that’s when Miami called our name.
We now live together in South Beach, FL with our English Bulldog, Frankie and couldn’t be happier.
How He Asked: Anthony surprised me with a weekend getaway to Key West, FL. Before dinner one night, we decided to take some photos down by the beach at sunset. We luckily spotted a couple who was nice enough to snap a few shots of us. Anthony then asked me if I wanted a photo of myself looking out onto the ocean. Of course I said yes. Who would pass up a sunset beach selfie?! He took the picture and when I turned back around he was on one knee, asking me to spend forever with him. Balling my eyes out, I said YES and turned around to see a photographer there capturing the entire proposal. After a photo shoot session on the beach, Anthony then surprised with a boat ride to a small private island off the Keys where we had the most romantic dinner on the beach to celebrate.
