Tell us about your engagement!
Michelle: Nate proposed to me at the LA Jackson rooftop bar which is where we had our first date. With the help of my best friend and maid of honor, he rented out the space and decorated the outdoor patio with framed pictures of some our favorite memories together. He hired a photographer to capture the surprise and included a video message from both of our parents to congratulate us. Afterwards, he arranged for a bunch of our friends to celebrate with us.
