HOW WE MET

It was May of 2012. Jaime was single and twenty-six living in West Los Angeles. Three thousand miles away, Michael was single and twenty-seven living in west Manhattan. Jaime had never been to New York, and Michael had never been to L.A. Neither knew the other person existed, and there was little reason in the world that their paths would ever cross. To each of their surprise luck struck during a weekend celebration in Las Vegas when they were introduced to one another by a mutual friend. They spent the rest of the day together talking, laughing and enjoying the sun. So much fun in fact, that Michael blew off steak dinner with the boys to spend more time with Jaime. Whatever unlikely chance brought them together that weekend, how they could ever maintain, let alone start, a cross-country relationship was even more mystifying. Jaime after all was a practicing Certified Public Accountant in Los Angeles, and Michael was a lawyer in New York. But somehow they both not only wanted it to be possible but felt they met “the one.” Just four days after meeting, Michael told Jaime he was sure they would get married one day. Meanwhile, Jaime had already told her mother that she had met the man that she was going to marry.

THE FIRST DATE

Jaime made the initial leap and got on a plane two weeks later to NYC for Michael’s 28th birthday party, at his favorite spot – the Boat Basin. As the two walked around the City over the weekend, they felt like reconnecting best friends, not a couple on their first real date. They took a picture of their feet walking side by side for the first time, and then a picture of them in a horse carriage in Central Park. They hiked in the Warbler section of the Park and took a picture there over the lake. They then enjoyed a dinner in Little Italy in the corner booth of Forlinis, one of Michael’s favorite authentic Italian restaurants.

WHAT HAPPENED NEXT

Three weeks later, for their second date, Michael flew to Oregon and joined Jaime at her cousin Dusty’s wedding. Over the next fourteen months, the two spoke everyday and criss-crossed the country on monthly flights to see each other – even if just for a weekend.

Jaime’s lifelong dream of being a nurse eventually took her to NYC in August 2013 to attend the New York University Accelerated Bachelor in Nursing program. Michael also happened to live there…

THE PROPOSAL

Fast forward three and a half years later after they met, to November 8, 2015. Reminiscent of their first date’s walk through central park, Michael told Jaime on a beautiful fall Sunday that he wanted to go for a walk in the Park. Jaime would say that Michael was nervous and awkward – in a way that he never was. He walked them to the Bethesda Fountain, and then walked away from it - twice. Finally, he asked her to go stand by the water’s edge so he could take her picture. Finally getting the nerve, he got down on one knee pretending to get a camera and instead, pulled out a ring. That’s when he told her that he could not imagine his life without her and asked her to marry him. Jaime was overwhelmed with joy and started crying. After three long seconds turned into four, Michael, still down on one knee asked, “SO THAT’S A YES THEN?!” Jaime then said YES, and clobbered Michael with a hug as the crowd in Central Park cheered them on. The rest is history…
