Marc and Avery met one night at a bar on the Lower East Side -- it was completely random! Avery and her former roommate, Lauren, saw two empty seats at a communal table, and while Avery waited for Lauren to grab drinks, Marc moved next to Avery to start talking. They finally ended the conversation several hours later and had their first date the following week. Since then, they have been dating for more than four years!
Avery and Marc both say that through their relationship, there were a collection of moments that made them realize they’re soulmates. Avery says, “Whether it's from our similar senses of humor, or to him challenging me to be the best version of myself, to truly taking care of me when I needed it most, there's never been a doubt in my mind that he's the one for me.”
Marc taught Avery how to ski and has been bringing her to Vail for the past few years. After trying to throw her off of the engagement by saying he wasn't planning to propose during their trip, he asked a stranger to take their photo at a scenic lookout on the mountain. It was the perfect moment! Marc got down on one knee and asked Avery to marry him.
Avery was involved with designing the ring, so she had a feeling it was going to be soon. However, after Marc threw her off, she didn't think it would happen then. So when he proposed, she was completely surprised! Especially since she helped design her dream ring, Avery LOVES her ring -- and we do too!!
As of now, they’re still in the process of planning, but they’re hoping for a summer 2020 wedding in Brooklyn. Congrats Avery and Marc!! We are SO happy for you!!
