Nikita and Robert
How We Met
My fiancé and I met at the University of Maryland, College Park 6 years ago. We were randomly paired up as lab partners in undergrad in Chemistry I and mutually had a crush on each other through college. Luckily, he asked me out on a date in December 2016 and we have been incredibly happy since. We both have a love for nature and gardens, so Robert proposed at the New York Botanical Gardens after taking me to see Hamilton on Broadway. A whirlwind of emotions overcame both of us, but we are very excited to start this journey together.
How He Asked
We were engaged on October 7, 2018, at the New York Botanical Gardens. He took me to the azalea gardens and after a very beautiful speech, he got down on one knee.
