Dani and Blair’s story began with a rush! As a college freshman, Dani rushed and joined a sorority, where she met Blair, who was already a sister. They immediately hit it off and spent that year becoming best friends. At Blair’s graduation at the end of the year, they shared their first kiss, and have been together ever since.
Although inseparable, the first 4.5 years of their relationship were long distance! Despite being on opposite ends of the east coast, they’ve been incredibly fortunate to have traveled all over the world together. Between the regularly scheduled visits between Florida and Philly, to the mountains of Alaska, beaches of Barcelona and everything in between, they love exploring new places together. While in Florida, Dani decided to rescue a dog to expand their family to include Dexter, their beloved pup. After 5 years, 4 states, and 3 apartments, together, they FINALLY moved their family to New York City.
For Blair’s 30th birthday, they planned a trip to the Amalfi Coast. For about a year prior to the trip, Dani had teased Blair that she would propose sometime before her big birthday. About 4 months prior to the trip, they scheduled a meeting with Olivia (together) to look at diamonds to see what they each liked. After the initial meeting, they each set out on their own to work with Olivia to design the perfect rings for one another. As the designated trip and itinerary planner, Dani knew exactly when and where she wanted to propose, but kept it a secret from Blair. Blair reviewed the itinerary to choose the location for her proposal and noticed a gorgeous restaurant overlooking Positano was listed on the evening of July 3rd. Secretly, Dani and Blair each told Dani’s sister Courtney, their identical plans for proposing! Courtney kept both secrets - plus an additional surprise! She planned for a photographer to capture the simultaneous SURPRISE proposals. Waiting for the perfect moment, Dani and Blair were each convinced that they would be the first to propose, but ultimately, they ended up proposing at the exact same time during sunset! After the proposal, they enjoyed dinner on the balcony, where they viewed a private fireworks display over dessert.
The newly engaged couple is taking their time to plan a destination wedding for October, 2020. Congrats Dani and Blair!! We are SO happy for you!!
