#FoxyFeature Kelly and Michael
Wedding Date: August 18th, 2018
How did you meet?:
About 5 years ago Mike and I were introduced through two of our best friends. Mike was at a concert with my best friend and he asked her if she had any single friends. This was before people could swipe right on Tinder so she simply showed him a photo of her eight closest friends. As the story goes Mike pointed to me and said "that one, I like her." A few weeks later Mike came into Manhattan in a blizzard on Santacon to meet me at a dive bar. With me in a leopard santa hat and him wearing one with elf ears we connected in the back corner of the room and have been inseparable ever since.
Tell us about the proposal!:
My favorite holiday is Halloween and no one knows that better than Mike. Three days before Halloween we had a day of pumpkin picking planned with my family but decided to stop at the same Gazebo where my sister asked me to be her maid of honor. Mike asked me to take a picture with him and little did I know that picture was actually a video. He got down on one knee and proposed. I was in complete shock (as was my mom who just kept yelling "no way"). The next few days Mike had planned lunches and parties with all of our friends for us to celebrate. It was the best Halloween weekend ever.
