Lauren and Nick

How We Met

Nick and I met 8 years ago when he asked me to be his date for our high school’s homecoming dance. I was a junior and he was a senior and we had always had the same circle of friends, but I never knew Nick as well. We began dating a few weeks after that dance and have been together ever since! Our relationship has grown and evolved from high school, to college, and now in our post graduate years but I am SO thankful that he decided to ask me to that dance all those years ago.

How He Asked

Nick’s family owns a car dealership so he told me that he won a weekend in NYC for selling the most cars that month in the area. Because we already live in the city he suggested we give our parents the free hotel rooms, but we could choose any of the activities they offered in the promotion during the day. We decided on going to the top of the Freedom Tower and a sailboat ride. After taking in the views at the Freedom Tower we walked over to a marina in Battery Park where the captain of the boat welcomed us aboard and congratulated Nick on winning the promotion for Chrysler. Because of this I still did not think it was out of the ordinary that we were the only two on the boat. As we began sailing around and approaching the statue of liberty, the crew suggested we go to the front of the boat for a picture.
