Angie & Ivan in New York, NY
After six years of dating, Angie and Ivan took a stroll in a park near their apartment facing the East River. While Angie and their dog, Taffy, were playing, Ivan quietly pulled out a small box from his pocket. Nudging her softly he showed her the ring and said, “Ka Pei Nor, ah?” (“Will you marry me?” in Chinese.) “I saw the ring and said ‘yes,’” says Angie.
