Leigh Ann and Dennis
How We Met
I met Dennis at my best friend’s New Years Eve party. She was his neighbor for most of her life and somehow in a 3 mile town, I never met him! The day of the party neither one of us wanted to go but somehow, fate had a different Idea. It was 11:55PM, the cab dropped me off at my friends. Of course, my best friend was not answering her phone and the door was locked. Dennis heard someone knocking and opened the door for me at 12AM
. That night my mom told me I looked beautiful and that I would meet my husband–the rest was fate.
How He Asked
He proposed on his birthday, July 13, 2017. We went out to dinner at Laicos in Jersey City NJ and then took a walk to view the NYC skyline in Weehawken, New Jersey which we usually do. I took a photo of him and he took one of me, another thing we usually do while viewing the skyline. He asked me to close my eyes so we could take a Snapchat filter photo–which is normal for us. When I opened my eyes he was down on one knee asking me to marry him. In the background the acoustic version of Happy Birthday was playing (because it was his birthday). I said yes!!! He had his brother in law hiding in the bushes taking pictures the entire time! Magical..still on cloud 9. He took my parents out to eat to ask their permission and I had no idea. He did everything right. Even though it was his birthday, he made it my day!
