It all started at a Gartner Summer Internship down in Fort Myers, FL back in 2018. There were 150 interns and we got to spend 10 weeks together taking weekend trips all over Florida. We started off as friends playing catch after work at the FGCU baseball fields. But we soon realized we would be more than friends and that “G(artner) Harmony” as they call it had struck yet again :) We still work for the same company today and have built a life together with our two beloved doggos and our first house together down in Raleigh, NC.
Uncle Dick and Aunt Teresa were kind enough to invite us down to Nice, France for a vacation. We were celebrating our 5 year anniversary so the timing was perfect! After climbing 10 flights of stairs and over looking Nice, Zach got down on one knee and said “You started off as my throwing partner, but now I want you to be my throwing partner for life”. After popping the question - an undercover photographer came out of nowhere and captured the whole thing. In typical Zach fashion - he had an entire day planned full of our favorite activities. We had a cabana down at the beach, ordered food service, champagne, a boat ride through the French Rivière followed by an Italian dinner and a night stay in beautiful hotel on the water. Zach never fails to make life fun and he is always full of surprises! It was a day we will never forget.
