Despite the fact that Stacy and Drew spent roughly 8 years living about an hour apart in South Florida and had a number of mutual friends, the two did not meet until after their first year of law school at Syracuse University. After finishing their final two years of law school together and getting engaged, Drew and Stacy moved to Buffalo NY together in August 2010.
After law school, Drew booked a weekend away for Stacy’s first trip to Skaneateles, New York. The vacation was a present to Stacy and she did not suspect a thing. However, Drew had something more planned than a delayed Hanukkah gift. Since December, Drew had known he would propose to Stacy in April and for her November birthday, he even bought her a practice ring in order to figure out her ring size so that he would have the perfect ring for the big night.
After a great dinner (and a couple glasses of vino to help Drew ease his nerves), Drew and Stacy took a stroll by the lake. Because Stacy’s heels were getting stuck in the grass, they found a bench to take a seat and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. As Stacy turned to the bench to make sure the seat was not wet before she sat down in her pretty dress, Drew knew it was the perfect opportunity to kneel down while Stacy was not looking. As she sat down, she noticed Drew was on one knee. Drew popped the question and then took out the ring box. Stacy was shocked, and not sure if Drew was serious until Drew opened up the box to reveal a stunning engagement ring.
