Emily and Eddie

Emily's Proposal in Pier A Park in Hoboken, NJ

How We Met

Eddie and Emily met in April of 2013 at William Paterson University during Greek Week. Both of them were just initiated into their organizations, Phi Kappa Tau and Theta Phi Alpha. They started talking before class and really hit it off. A few months later, they started talking again and began going on dates. Some of their favorite spots include Ramapo Reservation in Mahwah, New Jersey where they had their first date. After a few more dates, Eddie asked Emily to be his girlfriend on June 27, 2013. The two have been inseparable ever since and enjoy going on adventures together. Some of their favorite trips include Cape May, Washington D.C., Rhode Island and Cancun!

How He Asked

On Friday, December 22, 2017, Eddie told Emily they were going to Hoboken to see some of his work friends. After driving to Hoboken and receiving a text message from his co-worker saying they were going to be late, Eddie and Emily decided to take a walk around Pier-A-Park, their favorite spot in Hoboken. After walking around the park, Emily spotted candles in the shape of a heart with flowers in the middle and asked if they were for her.

Eddie had told her they were for someone else’s proposal. After walking around a few more minutes, Eddie got down on one knee and asked Emily to spend the rest of his life with her. To Emily’s surprise, the candles in the shape of a heart were really not for her!
