Jessica and Michael

How We Met: Six years ago, on my birthday, my family surprised me with a dinner at an Italian restaurant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, La Locanda. Little did anyone know I would leave La Locanda  that night with so much more than just a full belly of delicious food! At the end of our meal, the owner’s son, who also happened to be our server that evening, asked if he could take me out to celebrate my birthday some more. Two days later we had our first date and have been madly in love ever since!

How He Asked: After a romantic dinner for just the two of us on the pier in Long Island City, Queens, Michael asked me to step outside with him to admire the beautiful New York City view. After only a few minutes, I mentioned how cold I was and Michael gave me his jacket and we walked back to the car. Little did I know our night wasn’t over there! Michael suggested we go to another location on the pier in nearby Williamsburg, Brooklyn, La Nonna Ristorante where Michael and I took a seat at the bar.  He ordered champagne and before I knew it he was down on one knee! The best part about it was the way he was able to captutre the moment! We couldn’t be more excited about sharing this special moment in our lives!!
