Molly and Nick
How We Met: Nick and I met during a party at Merrimack College during his junior year and my sophomore year. Nick’s dance moves impressed me so much that when he asked me on a date to a Red Sox game the next week, I had to say yes! Not long after dating, I knew he was the man I wanted to marry. We’ve been dating now for four years.
How He Asked: Nick and I currently live about an hour from one another, so our weekends are our time to see one another. There was one weekend when my parents were visiting from New York to celebrate my nephew’s birthday. Nick and I had plans to go to church on Saturday evening with my parents and then have a barbecue with the rest of the family. To have a moment alone, Nick suggested a quick hike, just the two of us, before mass.
The hike that we chose has a beautiful clearing looking out over the town. When we finally got to the clearing, we were both looking out, admiring the view. Nick asked me if I wanted to take a selfie before continuing on and I said of course and asked him to grab my phone out of his backpack. While searching through his backpack, Nick got down on one knee and instead of pulling out my phone, he took out a small box with the most gorgeous ring I had ever seen and asked me to marry him. Of course, I said YES!
