Rosemarie and Joseph
How We Met
Joe and I have known each other since high school. We’ve been best friends since we were 14 years old. There was always a spark between us, but it was never the right time for us. We always remained extremely close. We ended up going to college together and working together at a local ice cream shop- Ralph’s. Fast forward 9 years and we’re finally both ready to take that step. It was frightening for both of us because we knew- if it didn’t work out, our friendship would never survive it.. and to risk an almost 10-year friendship was scary for both of us. We started out small, a dinner on a random weekend night, a movie, then it quickly escalated. We’re both mature for our age and were ready to take that next step, but the proposal was a complete and total shock!!
How He Asked
He took off of work one Saturday, which MY FIANCÉ never does ( that’s so much fun to say!!!) -anyways- we drove out to Montauk at 4 am so we could watch the sunrise. We’re very adventurous and had been trying to do this all summer. We sat there in a secluded area and just as dawn was breaking, Joe started flying his drone around. We were captivated by the beautiful scenery around us. Joe set it up so the drone was flying behind us and he got up to get more “camera parts”. He told me that he “needed my hand” and as I got up, he got down on one knee and asked me to spend my life with him. I was so stunned, I froze. He physically took my hand and put on the most breathtaking custom ring he designed and I couldn’t stop crying. And my amazing guy captured the entire proposal on video, tears and all. I could not be happier to be able to spend my entire life with MY BEST FRIEND!!!! I truly feel like the luckiest woman in the world.
