Melyssa and Joseph
How We Met
We met the summer of 2013 but did not start dating until the winter of 2014. We were young, barely 20 years-old. But there was so much there from the beginning – an instant connection. We finished college together and began to seek what it was we wanted to pursue for the future.
How He Asked
It had always been his dream to be a New York City Police Officer. So when he finally got called for the academy, we were ecstatic. No one deserved it more than him.
After a long 6 months of tests, drills, and assessments, the time came for him to graduate from the police academy at Madison Square Garden. I could not have been more proud of him at that moment. He had achieved his lifelong dream. Then he did this. It was the most beautiful moment, surrounded by his friends from the academy, our family, and even strangers! I love you!
