Justine and Paul

Justine's Proposal in Hudson valley, Ny

How We Met

I knew him from high school which was about 9 years ago from us connecting. I was in 9th grade while he was in 12th. I had a crush on him, being aware he was lead in all of the theatre shows the school put on he had amazing voice and played basketball and tennis. Fast forward 9 years I was browsing the internet and saw his picture and thought wow it’s been a while since I saw that face. We exchanged a few “likes” until Paul had messaged me. Since that very day we have not missed a day of speaking with each other. The connection we had was incredible, it was pure fate and love. Paul is the sweetest with the most kind heart.

How He Asked

Paul and I had a hiking trip planned for 3 months a few hours away from our home. We love the outdoors and love to go at least once a year so we were super excited. Paul was very adamant about taking a tripod and camera since we like to document everything and didn’t want to bother other hikers along the way. All day we were working towards the top of the mountain but it was so foggy and rainy we couldn’t see the outlook point. We were pretty bummed but then went on a search for a waterfall. Once we came upon one we set up the tripod. Paul wasn’t quite fascinated with the waterfall and couldn’t resist but getting a picture there.

Paul downloaded an app on his phone that took a sequence of pictures. We set both phone and camera up, Paul made sure to hit the button for us this time he literally ran over to me and got down on one knee and popped the question!
