“You had me at hello”

2016

To understand how this story starts, we must start at the very begining... It all started when Emily was 15, she was introduced to Tony’s older brother David by a mutual best friend and family friend, Jonathan. David soon became a friend and mechanic for Emily throughout the years and they stayed in touch. Keep in mind Emily had no history of Davids family or that he had any siblings at all. Fast forward 5 years later, on a random Monday. Emily was suppose to work that day, but as fate would have it, she came down with strep and had to miss a few days. Emily was visiting Jonathan that day, who had to make a quick stop at Davids. When they arrived, she decided to pop in and say hi! Upon coming in, staring at her from the kitchen was David’s little brother Tony. Wide eyed and just as curious. Jonathan and David BOTH looked at eachother almost knowing what was about to unfold. “Tony this is Emily, and Emily this is Tony. My little brother” David replied You don’t have to read love storys to know where this is headed... With eyes locked, enormous smiles, and undeniable attraction, they....SHOOK HANDS Tony insisted on a hug but with just getting over strep, Emily insisted they keep their distance. Oh little did they know, this was just the begining. This was the begining of a very happy ever after.

The Proposal

Christmas 2016

It was around Christmas of 2016 and Tony decided to stop at a jewelry store so he could look for a gift. He knew what he was there for, he just didn’t know where to start. He browsed around the rings, asked a few questions, and found one that caught his eye. Only one woman could make him think these thoughts. Even after only 6 months, he knew he didn’t want to be with anyone else. The way she was, the way she moved, the way she laughed, talked, and simply existed, just hit him a way nobody ever has before. He didn’t want to lose his opportunity, or waste another moment not claiming what was rightfully his; her heart forever. He saved the big question for a day they were surrounded by their loved ones, a day filled with love and happiness. So on Christmas Day, they made their way to Tony’s family’s gathering. He knew he wanted to be around the people who loved and supported him most. So that night, when it was time to give his present to Emily, she was handed a white box. She opened it and looked over not understanding why he gave her an empty box. When she turned around, he was down on one knee, with tears in his eyes asking “ Will you marry me??” && She said yes!!!
