Shayna & Chris in Denver, CO

Shayna and Chris had a quick romance when Shayna was living in Colorado for a few months, saving up money before moving to New York. Clearly, however, a longer lasting relationship was meant to be.

The Date July 29

Three weeks after Shayna moved to the east coast, Chris came to visit for the first time, and as soon as he’d graduated from school, he moved across the country to be with her. Five years later, the couple was playing a game of Scrabble in their pajamas and sharing some wine when Chris spelled out “Marry Me” on the board.
