From the bride. on the proposal story:
"Our proposal was one of the biggest surprises of my life! After dating for about a year and a half, we had already discussed marriage and had already received the blessings from our parents. Since he lived in Texas and I lived in New Jersey at the time, we would only get to see each other every 2-3 months. And it's not like we could do any surprise visits since we both had to plan these trips around our work schedule, vacation time, and family events. My sister had been telling me for a few months about a "work dinner" on a Saturday night and that she will be taking me as her plus one. So on June 22, 2013, we both got dolled up (she made sure I looked extra nice since all her co-workers will be "meeting" me) and headed over to Hoboken. Before going to dinner, however, she said everyone will be meeting at the Pier-A Park to take photos. As we were walking over there, I started to realize we were probably two of the best dressed people at the park. Feeling so much attention from the other casually dressed people at the park, I started to look for other dressed up people who were supposed to be there to take pictures. I started to worry that we were too late for pictures and told my sister that we should just head over to the restaurant. My sister said not to worry, and that she sees one of her male colleagues by the gazebo towards which we were walking. And I saw that there was a well-dressed gentleman standing a little farther up, facing our direction. The closer we got to the gazebo, I started telling my sister how much he looked like my then-boyfriend and how handsome he looked. And then we got even closer and realized it WAS my boyfriend who was standing in the gazebo! I was so shocked, I froze on the spot and couldn't move. My sister had to drag me towards him and I kept asking him what he's doing in Hoboken (he had told me that he had a wedding in Dallas to attend to that day). He then took my hand and walked me to the center of the gazebo. I looked around and saw a giant heart-shaped sign with rose petals and votives all around it. In the center was the words "Will You Marry Me?" I suddenly realized what was happening but at the same time I was in complete shock that I couldn't process everything so quickly. He then said so many things and popped the question. I said yes, and the rest is history :)."
