Daria and George

IMG_8036

How we met: We grew up in the same town, went to the same grade school (a few years a part) and even went to the same college at the same time, but somehow never met. Then years later one night in April we went to the same bar that neither of us would have ever been at unless for friends. I tapped him on the shoulder and before we knew it we were in deep conversation about everything from movies to how we both like to travel. I got in the car that night with my friend and said, I think I just met my soul mate.

How he asked: After telling me that he was taking me out for a special dinner, George walked me from our apartment lobby to the curb outside. He said, “He had the perfect place in mind. It just opened up and it was like it was made for me.” Suddenly he turned me right around and walked me back into our lobby and pointed at the door to the left I never been through before. That is when George surprised me with a restaurant filled with candles, photos of us and all our friends on November 14th, 2014. He then played a film on a 6ft screen with a project. The film starred him as a man trying to get money for a ring. He used scenes from our favorite movies (Godfather, It’s A Wonderful Life, and Back to the Future etc.) with him having conversations with Don Corleone, Rick, etc.  – the entire thing he had filmed to capture my reaction. It was perfect!
