How We Met


We had been at parties together before because of our mutual friends but our first time really meeting was in the Kirby backyard! One of my best friends was going and invited me along. It was supposed to be a beach day but Eddie got away with switching it to hanging by the pool - which, if you know Eddie, you know he loves that pool. I was ready to sit by my own parent’s pool but being as it was a holiday week for me, I went along with the plans. We talked nonstop that day and we have not stopped since.

The Proposal


We were going to lunch with my parents and Eddie mentioned walking around Northport Village first. Halfway through the ride I noticed that we were headed to Sunken Meadow which was fine for a walk so I let it happen. We went down onto the beach and I noticed someone taking photos of the scenery. It was a muggy day and I know Eddie was concerned for rain. We had just started walking but Eddie stopped. We are now in front of a family’s picnic. He got down on his knee and pulled out a gorgeous ring, whispering, “there isn’t going to be a better place to do this”. Of course I said yes and my friends came out with champagne and wine for photos ahead of our celebratory lunch. The weather cooperated and it was such an overwhelmingly happy day for us. We're so excited to celebrate this next chapter in our lives with you. See you in December!
