Lauren and Manny

how we met

Last July, we were both on a dating app called Tinder. We both liked each others pictures and shortly began exchanging messages on the app. The messages led to the exchanging of numbers. We talked for a few weeks through text and phone calls and knew we wanted to meet up. Both eagerly awaiting our first date, we decided to meet at a bowling alley for fun.

Our first date was a major success, with Manny readily admitting it was the best first date of his life. We continued to see each other every weekend since our first date. After several months of dating, we both knew the relationship was progressing into something truly special. We began seeing each other more throughout the week.

how he asked

With almost a year under our belt, we had been discussing the possibility of forever together. We both knew we didn’t want to spend our lives apart from one another. Little did Lauren know, I had already planned how I was going to ask for his hand. I set up a private winery tour at a beautiful vineyard, under the pretense of my birthday celebration.

I brought her to the vineyard, knelt down on one knee, pronounced my everlasting love for her, and asked if she would share her life with me. With the rolling hills of green grass and vineyards in the background, Lauren burst into tears of joy and immediately answered, Yes!
