Gianna and Nick

How We Met

We met when we were in high school and I knew that he was something special from day one. It took me a while to like him at first but once I did, my life changed forever. From young love to my future husband, I couldn’t be happier I chose him!

How He Asked

It was a normal Saturday night – me and Nick always make time to go out to eat every Saturday. With work and our busy schedules, it can be tough but date night is always a must. I could tell he was a little more nervous for some reason this night, but I didn’t think anything of it. He asked me where I wanted to go to eat (like always) and I told him whatever he wanted. He ended up picking the Highlawn Pavilion in West Orange, NJ. We had never been there, so I was excited to see how it was. We pulled up, they valeted our car and before walking in, he asked me to take a walk because he had to show me something. Assuming it was just the beautiful view of the NYC, I went with him.

To my surprise, I saw a walkway lined up with candles and letters spelling out “Marry Me” – He took my hand and we walked to the gazebo where everything was set up and I saw a picture of us from when we were 14 years old in highschool and then one of us from now with roses from #VenusEtFleur ❤️ I turned back to him in shock! He got down on one knee and smiled. He asked me and I said yes!!! I knew when I first met him when we were young that he was the one…..This night was one I will never forgot, I was filled with SO much emotion – I could not believe our special day was finally here.

Without hesitation, he put the ring on my finger and gave me the biggest kiss and hug. In that moment, I felt like I was on cloud nine. Couldn’t even remember what we ate for dinner! We left and went home and we were surprised with a lovely set up with both of our families. Truly the most magical night and over the moon to finally be his fiancé!!!
