Our story begins with a tradition. Ever since I moved to Massachusetts in 2008 to be with my now fiancée, Stefanie, we visit WaterFire. Sometimes our visits are planned, and sometimes we just happen to stumble upon Providence during an event night. Either way, it has become our tradition to attend WaterFire. For our first visit, on a summery night in July of 2010, Stefanie and I took a boat cruise. As we were gliding along the river passing the floating braziers I knew this would be the perfect setting to propose.
As I started planning my proposal, I soon realized I needed help. I emailed the Celebrate Program of WaterFire. I described a little about us and what my proposal plan was. Through phone calls and emails we finally arranged the perfect proposal.
