• Hoboken Photographer Gets Her Own Special Proposal Moment

    There’s nothing sweeter than an engagement being captured resulting in memories that will last a lifetime {and that you can share with your loved ones who weren’t there}. Professional photographers are often the superheroes behind proposals, but what happens when a photographer herself gets her special moment? Photographer, Devin Weakland, of Mile Square Moments, recently got engaged and shared her proposal story with us {and no, she didn’t take her own pics, lolz}. Read on to see how Devin’s very own Mile Square moment went down:

    “My best friend and love of my life asked me to marry him on a beautiful spring evening on Pier A in Hoboken, one of our favorite spots in the Mile Square City, as the sun set and sparkled against the Manhattan skyline. It was a dream – I felt like I was floating as he said some the sweetest words to me, knelt down on one knee, and asked me to spend forever with him. I managed to say ‘yes!’ through streams of joyful tears”

    “Matt and I were walking along the same pier almost two years earlier when we first realized we had feelings for each other. We stopped to take in the NYC cityscape, which was brightly lit against the night sky. I remember this night so clearly – we stood close to each other as we leaned against the railing, peering out over NYC and talking about life. It was incredibly romantic. We went on our first date that fall, and the rest is history!”

    “We celebrated our engagement night with a beautiful dinner at Del Frisco’s, and with both of our parents, who traveled in to surprise me and celebrate with us. It was the most special evening!”
