Emily works in Retail Marketing and Nate is a photographer.

How He Asked: Nate proposed on a rainy Saturday afternoon (2/7/15). After a stressful morning at the vet with their pup, he convinced Emily to “take pictures of the city” at Treasure Island, SF. A little suspicious, Emily posed in front of the city skyline while Nate secretly put his camera on record and then instantly got down on one knee!

He then quickly whisked her away for a night in Healdsburg, CA at the posh hotel, h2 and arranged for a romantic private dinner on the patio for just the two of them and Kitsu at Chalkboard restaurant.
