How We Met

My fiancé Ryan and I met in 2012 at a local bar. Both of us frequented the Grasshopper in Wayne for at least 3 years at that point (him a lot longer since he’s from the area!) without ever meeting. Little did we know that night we finally ran into each other would change our lives!

How He Asked

On December 19, 2015 we had been looking forward to a Friendsmas/Ugly Sweater Party for some time. Both of us created and decorated our sweaters and were on our way to one of our best friends houses for the party. The whole ride up Ryan seemed a little off, but who knew why!! As some of our closest friends filed in, we talked, laughed, and caught up. Finally it was time for the White Elephant Gift Exchange. Little did I know Ryan secretly made sure he received number 1 so he could have the last steal.

Everyone picked their gifts and it was finally time to open them. As he made his way across the room to me I started digging into my present. He stood in front of me, patiently waiting, I looked at him and asked what he got!! Before I could look at what was in his bag he was down on one knee (with our fur baby, Jack at his side) holding the most perfect engagement ring!

As we celebrated our new engagement our friends cheered and took pictures. We could not have asked for a better setting with better people. We were able to share our love with so many of our closest friends!
