Recently, Kate shared her amazing engagement story with us. Even though their original plans had changed, Kate and Gustavo created a very memorable trip together.
Here’s how Gustavo proposed to Kate (Written in Kate’s words):
“Gustavo and I had planned to go to New York for Thanksgiving, but plans changed when our hotel was damaged in Superstorm Sandy and closed for business. Instead, we decided to take a quick trip up to New Haven, CT, since both of us had always wanted to visit Yale’s campus.
On our first morning in town, we were headed out of the hotel when Gustavo said he had forgotten his watch up in the room. I waited downstairs for quite a while and had almost decided to go back upstairs to see what was wrong when he finally came back down. (Now that I know the rest of the story, this was when he was going back up to get the ring and trying to figure out the best place to hide it in his jacket!)
After breakfast, Gustavo suggested we take a walk through campus. It was a beautiful autumn day, and I was having a great time seeing all the old buildings and statues around Yale. We entered into an empty plaza (since it was Thanksgiving, the majority of students were gone), and Gustavo took the opportunity to get down on one knee and propose. I was completely surprised by the proposal, but of course was overjoyed & immediately said yes!
Even though neither of us attended Yale as students, we’ll always remember the beautiful campus and the spot where we became engaged.”
Here is a picture of the beautiful ring Gustavo gave to Kate:
