#FoxyFeature Laura and Jeffrey

Wedding Date: 10-22-17

SF: How did you meet?: 

L&J: We met in the bookstore at Hofstra Law School in January 2012. We were both attending law school there. We met through a mutual friend, and we hit it off right away. We had our first kiss later that week, and the rest is history!

SF: Tell us about the proposal!: 

L&J: It was my 29th birthday, June 24, 2016, and Jeffrey was taking me out to a nice dinner and it was a surprise where we were going. A cab took us downtown (NYC), and dropped us off on Rivington Street. Jeffrey started walking me down Freemans Alley, an adorable alleyway with graffiti art and cute lighting which leads to Freemans Restaurant. Little did I know, he had a photographer following us and about three quarters of the way down the alley, he got on one knee! He said a lot of really nice things, but ended by asking "will you make be the luckiest lobster and marry me?" The back story behind that is that shortly after we began dating, we went bowling and our "team" name was the Lucky Lobsters. Of course I said yes and then we went into the restaurant where we were congratulated and given champagne. After a few minutes, they brought us upstairs and they opened the doors to a room where both of our families were waiting to surprise me. Jeffrey had my parents and sister fly up to NY from FL, his brother flew in from LA, and the rest of his family from NY was there. We had an amazing dinner celebrating and, afterwards, our families suggested going out for one drink before calling it a night. We walked to a bar right across the street and I walked downstairs and opened the door to a room where about 75 of our friends were waiting to surprise me and celebrate with us. Before I could even take it all in, my three best friends from Florida jumped up from behind the DJ booth for yet ANOTHER surprise. Up until the wedding, it was the best night of my life. Jeffrey pulled off the perfect surprise engagement/birthday!
