Tom and Bridgette
How We Met
We met in 2014 in New York City on the Upper East Side and had our first date at Writing Room.
How He Asked
From when we first met, Bridgette has always talked about visiting Mohonk Mountain House in upstate New York. She talked about it like a castle out of a fairy tale. I knew how special to her so I knew it would be the perfect spot. I decided I’d take her up there for her birthday and surprise her with the question. Two weeks before the big day, I hiked up to the spot by myself in the pouring rain and carved my proposal into the guardrail overlooking this view. She said yes, and the rest is history. After the proposal, we went to our birthday brunch and we had a table with roses looking out over the mountain range. For her birthday present, I booked an engagement photo shoot in Paris in a few weeks.
