Dave Proposes to Steph
She had absolutely no idea. Even till the day of the event, Steph thought they were going to a painting lesson at a studio in Williamsburg. But what Steph walked into was a beautifully decorated space that showed all the memories, photos, and inside jokes Dave and her shared throughout their relationship. Every detail was perfectly placed, and meticulously thought out through months of preparation, and a few sleepless nights.
He took her through each part of the room, photos on the wall, polaroids hanging off a string, and excerpts from their chats mounted on a board, each piece surrounded by candles and Steph's favorite flowers. The finale of the surprise was a video that Dave had prepared that showed photos and all the nicknames that they called each other. After the video, Dave got down on his knees and told Steph, "I've called you all these names throughout our relationship, but there's one I'd love to call you for the rest of my life: my wife."
Friends came by after the proposal to celebrate and Steph got to video chat with her family to show off her new ring and fiancé.
Steph and Dave, thank you for letting me be a part of such a beautiful event. Congratulations to you both!
Here's a video my friend and wonderful videographer Fred Lee made of the proposal.
