James and Debbie - Caught on Camera - a Priceless Reaction!

How We Met: James and I met while I was in graduate school at Quinnipiac and he was working as a teacher in Woodbridge, Connecticut. We hit it off right away. I was finishing up school soon and was going to be moving back to New Jersey to finish my clinicals for physical therapy school, but we visited each other every weekend and when it came time to get a job, I decided to move to CT and get a job there to be with James.

How He Asked: James proposed about a year after I moved to CT with the very creative video (seen below!). I was in shock. We had talked about getting married but I didn’t think he was gong to propose any time soon. Then on February, 28 2011, a random Monday night, he showed me the video and completely surprised me. We chose to have engagement pictures with our dog Daisy because she is very important to us and we took our pictures by the sound because we love to sail on the Sound in the Summer.
