While visiting friends in Boston one weekend, Matthew and Eva decided to walk around the Tufts University campus; they had met there six years earlier. They approached the historic war cannon on the grounds, which students paint to announce events like frat parties and soccer games and then guard overnight to make sure no one paints over their messages.

The Date September 13
This time, though, the cannon was painted with, “Eva, will you marry me?” After she said yes, a town car took the couple to the restaurant where they celebrated their first Valentine’s Day together. About a year later, the two had a local wedding with a destination feel in Southampton.
