Stephanie and Zach first met when Stephanie was working for a cable company in New York. Zach owns his own business and came to New York for a project which lead to their meeting.
“We met through work, became friends and over time our friendship grew.”
After Zach’s project in New York he moved on to a project in Texas and then to Manhattan, so for much of their relationship distance was the name of the game.
“While he was living in Manhattan I would travel by train and air to see him as often as I could”
She Said Yes!
One of those regular trips to Manhattan became more special than the rest.
“I had gone to Manhattan on a Thursday because we were heading to Charlotte, North Carolina the following day for a retirement party.”
Zach had a plan in place for how he would ask Stephanie’s hand in marriage but plans changed.
“Zach was planning on asking me to marry him in the Blue Ridge Mountains however he couldn’t wait!”
A gorgeous evening in August became the backdrop for a beautiful proposal.
“We decided to go to the rooftop of Zach’s apartment building in New York City to have a glass of wine and enjoy the evening. Overlooking the Empire State Building and the Chrysler building, he got down on one knee, said the most beautiful things to me and asked me to marry him.”
