Monica and Marco
How We Met
Marco & I had a mutual friend who was planning a summer shore house down the shore in NJ. Before the summer we planned to all get together to meet each other since there were several people who were in the house that did not know each other. As soon as we met, I knew that we were going to marry each other, I actually even told him “I’m going to marry you one day!” Luckily that didn’t scare him away, lol, and after that night we’ve been together ever since!
How He Asked
It was the day after his birthday, a Friday to be exact, and we wanted to celebrate in NYC by going to the NY Botanical Gardens! While we were walking throughout the gardens he asked if I wanted to stop to take a picture, so he asked a sweet man walking by if he wouldn’t mind snapping a few photos for us! At this point I knew what was about to happen because I had seen the ring box in his pocket all day!! I was so ecstatic I almost couldn’t contain my excitement! He then got down on one knee, and after over 5 years of dating, asked me if I would be his wife!! We both were in tears and couldn’t have been happier! We celebrated, on a high of happiness, all weekend long with family and friends!!
