I had seen Emily walking out of our freshman dorm building and remember it like yesterday. I couldn't keep my eyes off of her. Coincidentally, a mutual friend of ours met Emily in the elevator and they planned to go to the gym together. That very same mutual friend invited my roommate and I to join them and to my surprise, the friend that she had met was the girl I fell head over heels for. That same night I asked Emily for her phone number and the rest is history. - Jon
Back in 2017, for fun, we went to Sayen Gardens to do a photoshoot. It was just the two of us. Because of that day, Sayen Gardens has since held a special place in our heart. When pondering a location for the proposal there was no other place that I could commit to. The day of the proposal, it was storming. Upon entering the parking lot the rain had suddenly stopped; it was meant to be. We walked out of the car, to a location of the park in which Emily had not explored. To her surprise, under the wooden gazebo was the words "Marry Me". We walked toward them, I got on one knee and asked, "Emily Rose Collini, will you marry me?"... she said "Yes!!"
