Stephanie and John
How We Met
In 2006, I was heading into my first year at college and John was going into his fourth at Stony Brook University. On the first day of classes I went to the student activity center with my roommates. I and I crossed paths in the hallway. I didn’t think anything of it, but he felt something and then thought he would never see me again. The next month our worlds collided and I arrived at a friend’s dorm who had John as a roommate. He opened the door and to his surprise I was on the other side. We believe it to be fate that brought us together.
How He Asked
After being together for so long, I had been on the lookout for suspicious events, outings, vacations and rings in my dessert. Coming home from one of our vacations still without a ring on my finger, I gave up on expecting it. On Saturday, February 7th, 2015, I went to breakfast at Alice’s Tea Cup with my friends. After some scones and tea we decided to walk over to Central Park for some sightseeing. It started to snow and I did not want to continue through the Park. My friends insisted that we make it to the bridge for a pretty picture and enjoy the beautiful white fluffy snow. Finally making it to the iconic Bow Bridge, preparing to snap a selfie, John walked up behind us. He called out my name, and when I turned around I saw him down on one knee, holding a ring. He asked and I said YES!
