Rachel & Issac

Rachel and Isaac met at a New Year’s Party that they we were both dragged to by friends. Isaac was bored and about to leave when Rachel walked in the door. Isaac decided to stay and try to talk to her instead. There was an instant connection and they ended up talking for hours that night. When the night was over, Isaac helped Rachel find a cab home and sent her off without even asking for her number, but the couple found each other within a few days and the rest is history!

Rachel and Isaac knew they had something special and started planning their potential future together as early as their second date.

Isaac proposed a year after their initial meeting, at the apartment in which they met. He arranged for the girls who hosted the New Year’s party to lend him their apartment for the night, and had it filled with roses and cupcakes waiting for Rachel

Catherine & Emmanuel

Catherine and Emmanuel’s story feels like destiny. Two individuals born 8 days and 5,000 miles apart were brought together by the benefits of modern dating algorithms. The couple met at Hendricks Tavern in October 2012 – their first date.

Catherine and Emmanuel felt the chemistry at Hendricks. They both realized it was love on their second date. Manny planned a progressive evening and would not tell Catherine the agenda. The couple met for cocktails and appetizers at an Asian fusion restaurant in the theater district. The next stop was the Eugene O’Neill Theatre to see The Book of Mormon. Dinner followed at Catch in the Meatpacking District. They wanted a cozier setting to wrap up the evening and made it to Beekman Bar and Books till closing. Life hasn’t been the same since that night!

The proposal. Manny surprised Catherine with a trip to Vegas. Catherine thought they were heading to North Carolina and was shocked that their short weekend getaway was about to turn into an adventure. The deed was done during a romantic dinner fountain side at Picasso. Manny waited for Con Partiro by Bocceli to be played during a fountain show as the couple sipped cocktails. The hopeless romantic had it all planned out to the minute! Catherine was asked to marry Manny standing by the rail ingesting the magic.

Bianca & Mark

Bianca and Mark met during their freshman year of college at the University of Michigan. They started out as just friends. During their freshman year, Bianca’s sorority had a date party at a chinese restaurant and she couldn’t resist asking Mark. Bianca and Mark shared endless memories throughout college and Mark was there for Bianca throughout law school. After she graduated, they moved in together.

Bianca and Mark went back to the University of Michigan last summer just the two of them. They spent the weekend going to all of their favorite restaurants. After they were walking through the center of campus, Mark proposed! He had surprised Bianca with a photographer who was hiding when he proposed. Even after 10 years together, Bianca was speechless and couldn’t stop jumping up and down. There was a tour taking place on campus and everyone was cheering for them. The couple spent the rest of the afternoon taking pictures in Ann Arbor.

Victoria & Brett

They say the best love stories happen at the most unexpected time. Victoria and Brett met at a mutual friend’s birthday party. They crossed paths as Victoria was leaving and Brett was arriving at the party. Victoria was saying her goodbyes to her friends when they caught eyes. A short introduction led to an endless conversation that night and a midnight diner date. They had their first date the following day and from that moment it was history.

After their six year journey together, Brett proposed to Victoria while on a scenic walk along the Hudson River in Tarrytown, NY.  Two years later, in the same town, they said ” I do” to a forever kind of love.

Samantha & Aaron

Samantha and Aaron have known each other since they were little, but did not become friends until senior year of High School. After attending a few of the same parties, they became close and a few weeks later Aaron surprised Samantha at her after school job, with “Will you go to prom with me” on his car.

From there, they continued to date long distance, Samantha at the University of Maryland and Aaron at Boston University. The couple visited each other whenever they could, and finally got the chance to spend an amazing semester abroad together in London. After college they both moved to NYC and continued to explore their city and travel the world together.

After another few years, Samantha and Aaron were taking a walk on the river by their apartment. Aaron told Samantha to look ahead at the George Washington Bridge, and when she turned around he was down on one knee, and Samantha could barely understand what he was saying, she was so excited! The couple walked over to the Frying Pan where Aaron had close family and friends waiting to celebrate the newly engaged couple!
