Julia and Richie
How We Met
Richie and I met while I was bartending and he was customer who always came in on friday nights when I was working. We started talking every night and after our first date we just knew we would be together.
How He Asked
Richie loves to surprise me and he told me we were going to Las Vegas for a business trip. (We live in NY and I have never been to Vegas). Richie let me look all over the Internet for things I would want to do while we were out there and I came up with a few things but I specifically said I didn’t want to leave Vegas without a caricature drawing, since we don’t have one. We arrived in Vegas and on the way to “cocktail hour” to meet his “business partners” we had time to get a caricature drawing.
Little did I know that Richie set up the caricature drawing previously and as I thought the drawing was being done spontaneously the artist turned around the drawing as Richie got down on one knee.
He flew my parents out from NJ and they got to watch the entire proposal, as you can see in the video posted.
