Real Proposal Stories: Matt and Emily's Bridgehampton Beach Engagement

bridgehampton proposal

“Not many New Yorkers can say ‘Thank Goodness for Hurricane Sandy’” besides Matt and me, explained Emily when telling us how she and her new fiancée met.   “After Matt evacuated his apartment in the Financial District, he was living with his close friends on the Upper East Side.  Coincidentally, these were my friends too!  When our mutual friends were having a house warming party, Matt was still crashing there.  We met that night and hit it off,” Emily says.

A few weeks later, Matt asked Emily on their first date while they were watching a Giants game.  “He’s a huge Patriots fan from Massachusetts.  I can’t believe he asked me out while I was wearing an Eli Manning jersey!” Emily said.

When it was time to choose the ring, Matt and Emily shopped together.  Emily had explored Pinterest and found pictures and ideas of rings she loved.  They came into Greenwich St. Jewelers to choose a setting while enjoying complimentary champagne, celebrating this important event in their lives.  Emily knew she wanted an elegant, yet delicate setting and a cushion-cut diamond.  After the initial meeting, Matt came back by himself and chose the perfect diamond with a setting from Danhov.
