"Then they stayed there alone for two hours drinking champagne and eating oysters."
"Proposed on July 4th in the cellar of a west village restaurant ... Then they stayed there alone for two hours drinking champagne and eating oysters."
"Before we went into Madison Square Garden, Michael asked me to re-enact how and where we met up before our first date; thinking this was very silly, I obliged."
"For our First Date on February 10, 2012, Michael took me to the Knicks/Laker game at MSG. It was an incredible game during the Linsanity craze, and by far the best first date ever! We both left that night with an unforgettable feeling in our hearts and 'butterflies' in our stomachs. Needless to say, we have been inseparable ever since. Exactly one year later on February 10, 2013, I thought it would be sweet to take Michael to the Knicks game to celebrate our amazing year together. Michael had much larger plans for our special day. Before we went into MSG, Michael asked me to re-enact how and where we met up before our first date; thinking this was very silly, I obliged. Only this time when I walked up to where he was waiting for me, he dropped down to his knee and asked me to marry him."
"He got down on one knee and said the most wonderful & romantic things, I was so excited that I was just jumping up and down and he had to ask again 'so is that a yes?' I screamed 'Yesss!'"
"He surprised me with a trip to Boston because I had always said I wanted a little trip, just the two of us! We walked all over playing the tourist and day drinking at rooftop bars. We ended up in the public gardens. He got down on one knee and said the most wonderful & romantic things, I was so excited that I was just jumping up and down and he had to ask again 'so is that a yes?' I screamed 'Yesss!' He also had hired a hidden photographer and so we have all the photos from the engagement in the park! Then he took me to a great sushi and champagne dinner. We are now getting married in 10 Days."
"I walked over to the balcony going with the thought that he was going to ask me if I wanted a cappuccino... and my forever was on one knee."
"Our love started out as a friendship for 7 years and blossomed into a story-tail [sic] romance overnight! We took our passion for culture, food and adventure and traveled the world together as best friends crazily in love! Both having Italian backgrounds, we recently went to Italy for the first time together. On our second night stay in Rome I was just finishing my makeup while listening to the clinking of the dishes and sounds of laughter from the cafe below when my boyfriend said he was going downstairs to grab a cappuccino. Our room had these amazing floor to ceiling French doors that perked over the cobbled stone side street cafe! It was a dreamy spot to sit and just listen to the sounds of Rome. I was just about done with my mascara when I heard Anthony call my name from the window. I walked over to the balcony going with the thought that he was going to ask me if I wanted a cappuccino and when a fought threw [sic] the wind blowing curtain my forever was on one knee. "I love you sooo much, I want to spend my life with you. Will you marry me!" They say..when in Rome!!"
