Jenna and Gino

Where to Propose in Untermyer Gardens

How We Met

Gino and I met in August of 2014. I knew he was one day going to be my husband. It was truly love at first sight.

How He Asked

Monday was just a regular day, except my best friend, Samantha, asked if Gino and I wanted to go to Untermyer Gardens to see a Christmas light show that evening with her family. Gino and I drive to the garden, and I had never been there before, so all I am thinking is how magical and romantic this place is! It looks like a castle, covered in lights with beautiful music playing. I thought to myself, I do not think this is what Samantha had in mind! There was not a light show but something even more spectacular… We begin to walk around the garden, we got all the way to the end of the garden, and Gino and I are taking photos.

Jenna's Proposal in Untermyer Gardens

After a few photos, Gino says, “Wait one more”. He then, gets down on one knee, and asked me to marry him! I scream, I cry, and could not wait to say YES! It was the most romantic, most exciting night of my life!
