Ellen and Chris met on a February night in 2013 at one of Brooklyn’s finest bars – Hank’s Rootin’ Tootin’ Saloon. Their meet-cute was just that, a cute meet up that grew into a tender romance. In December 2014 a move brought them to Boston, just in time for a record-breaking 100+ inches of snowfall. A year and a half later, they traveled to Syracuse to celebrate Chris’ 32nd birthday. Unbeknownst to Ellen, he had been carrying an engagement ring that he designed with a friend. On the way home, Chris surprised Ellen with a detour to where he proposed. Ellen said yes!
