From the bride, Cailin: One of the reasons Zach and I click so well is that we have the same sense of humor. We love Aziz Ansari’s show, “Master of None,” and had been planning our own ‘Nashville Date,’ just like in our favorite episode. We planned to go in March, but for Valentine’s Day, Zach’s gift to me was that he had hired a photographer to take our photos while we were there. Obviously, I know how these things go. I started scouring his apartment for the ring and told my roommates that Zach was proposing; they were pretty much on call during our whole trip.

We met our photographer at a cute little restaurant, and eventually, Zach led me out back. Flowers are the key to my heart, so, when I saw the greenhouse bar and a bouquet of flowers lying on the ground, my mind went completely blank. Luckily, Carrie was there to snap some photos, because I honestly don’t remember the proposal one bit.

As soon as we were finished taking photos, we walked through an alley back to my car. I think it wasn’t until then that I fully regained my consciousness, came out of a daze, and realized what had just happened. Zach and I yelled, “WE’RE GETTING MARRIED!” at the top of our lungs to the first guy we saw. Even though he was a perfect stranger, he ran over and gave me a huge hug. It was probably the best hug anyone has ever given another human being in the history of the world.

P.S. sorry to any friends, family, or unsuspecting roommates who thought they had better reactions when I called to break the news.
