Ash­ley Decker and Maxx Cua met at a party like most col­lege stu­dents do; how­ever, their meet­ing would spark a sweet love story un­like those of their class­mates. “She walked into the room and I im­me­di­ately went up and in­tro­duced my­self – the old-fash­ioned way,” says Maxx. “It felt like we had known each other for years.” Within three months of dat­ing, Maxx knew he would pro­pose, and after a bliss­ful courtship, he asked her fa­ther for his blessing and be­gan de­sign­ing an en­gage­ment ring to suit his beloved’s style.

When Maxx found out he needed to visit New York for work, he im­me­di­ately in­vited Ash­ley. Be­fore a sup­posed meet­ing, Maxx asked her to join him for an af­ter­noon of ice-skat­ing at Rock­e­feller Cen­ter. “After a few min­utes, he got down on one knee and pro­posed!” shares the bride of the mem­o­rable mo­ment. A photograph­er caught ev­ery­thing on cam­era as she hap­pily ac­cepted. The groomto-be had yet an­other sur­prise pre­pared: he booked reser­va­tions at their fa­vorite restau­rants in the city so they could spend the rest of the trip cel­e­brat­ing.
