Hilary and Andrew

Hilary's Proposal in St. Louis Arch

How He Asked

A couple weeks before the big engagement my fiancé’s mom sent out a group text saying that one of her friends was getting together a happy hour on the rooftop of the Hilton that overlooks downtown St. Louis, called Bar 360. We had been to one before so it wasn’t out of the usual. As Andrew and I valeted the car and I began to walk in he told me his mom and sister were over by the arch across the street and we were going to meet them quick. At this point, I had a suspicion. He also pulled out a brand new tan blazer I had been wanting him to get, so something was up!

We were walking towards the arch and looking at the monument and took a quick selfie. After that, he got down on one knee! A park ranger happened to catch our photo as I was crying on his shoulder after I said yes! The fun wasn’t over, he planned my family and his family to be waiting to celebrate with us on the rooftop! Champagne and lots of memories were shared that night. It was a night I won’t forget!
