When it comes to Emily and Brian, one this is certain...these two love to have fun! Whether they're taking trips around the world or spending summers enjoying the water of Long Island Sound on their boat, Emily and Brian just love to soak up every ounce that this life has to offer together.
Their story began through a mutual friend at work who introduced Brian to Emily. He then convinced Emily that she should go see a movie with some mutual friends so they could get to know each other better. Since that day, life has taken them on adventures all over the world together but to this day, their favorite place is Washington DC, where they make a trip every year and is also where Brian proposed. It was a proposal he had been planning for weeks.
Emily and Brian arrived to DC on a Thursday and Brian planned to propose first thing the next morning. But as luck would have it, it was pouring rain on Friday, leaving Brian with a ring in his pocket for 24 hours, waiting for the perfect moment to propose. Since Emily didn't suspect anything, they went out and had a normal night in DC, enjoying some amazing sushi and each others company. The next day the rain moved out and Emily and Brian decided to go out for a walk in the morning. After Emily's frantic search for cold brewed iced coffee they settled to relax on the capital steps next to some flowers. And since this trip to DC is an annual thing, they spent time talking about all of the experiences they've had together in the city. Emily said "It seems like we've literally done everything" at which point Brian replied with "Well, there's one thing we haven't yet done...and that's get engaged!" Emily was shocked and immediately started crying tears of joy, asking Brian if this is real life. A couple minutes later, after never actually answering the question, Brian intervened and asked again, to which Emily responded with "Of course!". And the rest, as they say, is history!
Congratulations Emily and Brian! We can't wait to see where your journey's take you next!
