Stefanie and Dan
How We Met
Dan was a senior and I was a junior in high school and his best friend was dating my best friend. I had just gotten out of a relationship and wasn’t really looking for anything serious, but the second they introduced us and we started talking, we just clicked. Although we went to separate colleges, we made a point to visit each other every two weeks. After we graduated, we both moved back in with our parents, but would constantly be searching for our perfect first apartment. Then we discovered they were building brand new residences in our town, and right on the train line (perfect for me since I work in the city). We’ve now lived together for over a year and it’s been so great. We’re excited to see what the future holds.
How He Asked
We were in Palm Beach, Florida on a vacation with Dan’s parents, his sister and his brother-in-law. His mom, sister and I had just finished up at the spa while the boys were finishing their round of golf. We had all decided to meet at the course for lunch. When we arrived, the grounds were absolutely stunning. Beautifully manicured greens, the warm breeze and not to mention the ocean view! As soon as we got there, the boys gestured for us to come take pictures on the 18th hole, right by the water. As soon as Dan and I had finished taking our picture, I was about to walk away when I heard, “Wait!” And next thing I know he was turning towards me and getting down on one knee. I was in complete shock and was speechless, like there actually weren’t real words coming out of my mouth. Even after I heard him say, “Will you marry me…?” I still couldn’t process what was happening. But I suddenly snapped out of it and shouted, “Yes, of course!”
