Kelly and Matt
How We Met
Matt and I met in high school through a mutual friend 8 years ago, when we were just teenagers. We dated long distance throughout college and still remained as close as ever. Nothing could break us apart.
How He Asked
Matt took me to brunch on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. He brought me to a beautiful restaurant overlooking Central Park and all of New York City. I was busy obsessing over the view and the chicken and waffles but little did I know what was about to happen when dessert came out. The waiter brought over a tray of fortune cookies with our dessert. I am not huge on fortune cookies but Matt insisted I have one. I opened one up to find a fortune slip inside asking me to marry me.
In the middle of the restaurant with the most breathtaking view behind us, Matt got on one knee and the entire restaurant (including the staff who was in on it) started clapping and cheering!
