Galina and Jon are an adventurous and outgoing couple who met through a serendipitous event. On the night they met Jon had plan to go to dinner with friends, but decided to change plans at the last moment. He stepped into a bar where Galina was waiting and the two had instant chemistry. They have been together ever since. Jon, a native New Yorker, loves spending time with Galina and their cat Tux. Galina is a nurse and also grew up in New York. Jon says it was Galina’s smile that won him over, while Galina was impressed that Jon was a guy that followed through with his commitments. Galina moved in with Jon after a year of dating and they have been together for three years.
Jon and Galina knew it was just a matter of time before the engagement. Jon decided to propose on the coldest day of the year. He had an elaborate and romantic proposal planned in a botanical garden. However, Galina had worked all night and came home exhausted. She did not want to walk around a garden on the coldest day of the year. Jon quickly changed his plans and popped the question in the middle of the living room in pajamas. Galina was so surprised and said “Yes!”
