Clear Cut Couples: Doug and Jeanine

Doug and Jeanine met through a mutual friend! For their first date, they went to a tapas restaurant near Doug’s old apartment and walked around the city for Jeanine’s birthday. A few months after, they were official and have been together for 4 1/2 years since!!

They have shared so many incredible memories over the years! Some highlights are spending their summers down at the Jersey Shore where both of their families have homes just a couple minutes away from each other. And, they have traveled to so many beautiful places around the world together (Ortigia, Sicily being one of their favorites). And of course, adopting their first pup Frankie!!

Doug proposed on Halloween! His original plan was to propose in Jefferson Market Garden near their apartment! So, their friend who took photos of the proposal went to go scope it out early that morning and found out it was closed due to maintenance so immediately texted Doug and he had to come up with a back up plan which was a walk through Washington Square Park with Frankie. Jeanine said, “He was taking photos of us and then next thing you know he was down on one knee asking me to marry him! He had both our families waiting for us back at our apartment when we returned. Then later that evening he had all our friends come over to celebrate with us. It was truly a perfect day!”

They would love a 2021 NYE wedding and are taking their time planning given the pandemic. Congrats you two! We are SO happy for you!!
