Abi: On line! It was both our first time ever on a dating site. We were each others first dates. I reached out to him.
Abi: Our first date lasted 12 hours. We met each other at the Met which is both one of our favorite museums. We then had dinner and drinks in Soho. So for the proposal Eric asked me the week before to leave that day open as he wanted us to see a photography exhibit at the Met. I ended up being late as I decided to go get a massage first, which unfortunately caused me to feel sick and dizzy afterwards. When I arrived at the Met Eric wanted to grab a cocktail on the roof before seeing the exhibit, I of course not feeling well wanted to sit down on the stairs to the entrance. As I started to feel better we made our way up to the roof. As we walked onto the roof, two women just happened to move aside so we could lean against the railing looking out at the gorgeous view. Unbeknownst to me Eric’s good friend, a photographer ,was taking photos of us as Eric proposed. It was all very sweet and I almost ruined it.
Abi: At the Sky Gallery in Brooklyn. We wanted something unique, intimate and small. This was just the place.
Abi: Out of the ones I provided I would have to say the photo of Eric and I in front of the industrial steel background. Its modern and soft at the same time, like Eric and I.
Abi: I couldn’t pick just one. I loved every minute.
Abi: I may have been wearing sneakers at some point.... And thank you so much to our day-of coordinator, Alexandra Townsend, our caterer, Purselane Catering, the Gowanus Hospitality Group at Sky Gallery and of course our photographer, Lee O' Connor.
