How Kim & Dan Met

Assigned seating is usually a student’s worst nightmare but it worked out well for Kim and Dan. They sat next to each other in math class at Hall High School. It wasn’t until Dan offered her a ride home from school when she decided, she’d give him a shot. Their first date was a picnic at the Farmington Reservoir where they watched the clouds go by for hours. The rest you could say, was history

The Proposal

Our Proposal on DuBois Beach, Stonington, CT Our Proposal on DuBois Beach, Stonington, CT

After living in Mystic, Connecticut for a year, Dan brought Kim around Mystic to all her favorite places and the small town beach they went to every day over the summer. The night before, he strung up Christmas lights, her favorite, played some music to dance to, then popped the question at the gazebo under all the twinkling lights.
