About Me:

My name is Chrissy. I am engaged to Rick, the love of my life. Together, we have an awesome greyhound named Rocco. The three of us are a happy little family. We live in New York City (Manhattan) in a cozy apartment near to parks, places of interest, and the water. We love it. Both Rick and I are eager to begin our married journey together, with Rocco sharing in our day (he'll be walking down the aisle at the ceremony!)

How We Met:

We met at a party in 2008. It took three meetings for me to pay attention to Rick, unfortunately (not through any fault of his own!) The third time was a charm; he finally scored my digits and planned our first date (a magical date!) We've been best friends ever since...

The Engagement Story:

Rick is a professional actor at The Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, which is set outdoors on the grounds of a beautiful, riverfront mansion (the shows take place in an outdoor tent.) On a gorgeous Friday night -- the last performance of one of his shows last summer -- he took the opportunity during curtain call to grab the microphone and make a speech in front of over 500 people. Turns out the speech was his proposal. He dropped to one knee in front of a roaring crowd to pop the question to me (who he strategically sat in the front row). I was shocked and covered my face for most of the proposal, which only made the crowd cheer louder and longer. Such an amazing night that will never be forgotten. Oh, and I said, "Yes," by the way.
