Savannah and Evan Horse And Carriage Proposal
How we met by Savannah: It was my second day at my new college, and my previous roommate knew Evan from home. I went over to his house to hang out with some people and asked him if he had the NBA2k16 video game (It turned out to be his favorite game, and I had just played it all summer with the boy I nannied). That was what sealed the deal. Our personalities were, and are still, so perfect for each other. We have talked everyday since, and have seen each other almost everyday. From that night, I knew I would marry him.
His story on how he asked: Friday started off as a hectic day. We had tickets to go to liberty island to see the Statue of Liberty and to see Ellis island. It took forever to get down to battery park and to get to the islands themselves. By the time we were done it was already 3 o’clock and I had made arraignments for a carriage ride through Central Park at 5:30. We had to make it from battery park back towards our hotel in Times Square in 2 hours, plus eat. We also discovered that I had forgotten a belt and Savannah needed a jacket, so we had to frantically search the stores. Once we got what we needed and scarfed down some lunch, we raced back to the hotel room to get changed and head to the park. Traffic hit so we arrived a little late but it ended up being no problem at all. We began our carriage ride around the park and it was very peaceful and romantic. Our driver came up to the Bow Bridge and suggested we go down and take pictures. Knowing this was apart of the plan, I walked Savannah down to the bridge where we took in the beautiful sights. Once I thought the time was right, I began a little speech about how much I love her and how much she means to me. I figured it’d be best to not prepare what to say before hand, so I would be able to genuinely speak from my heart. At that point she knew what was happening as tears filled her eyes. She’s couldn’t have said yes faster and I slid the ring onto her finger. Our photographer was able to capture every moment. We continued our carriage ride and went for drinks at the Plaza Hotel afterward. We told them we just got engaged and they took pictures for us and gave us a free dessert. Afterward we went to Davio’s and had a delicious dinner. We made sure to truly celebrate the special night that we will never forget.
