MEET ME – PART 1:
The Corri Storri (sp?):
Rather than bore you with the details, I’ll just share this video from the night I proposed to Corri. Our life was a whirl-wind of perfect timing (honestly)…everything happened as fast as it possibly could, while remaining perfect.
I made this video in little bits and pieces, over three months. The first vignette was after a two-week visit where she’d surprised me with the news that she was going to move from LA (where we had met) to NYC (where I had accepted a job, three months after we started dating). I’d been telling her that I would love that, but had always been a commitment-phobe so she was originally worried that I was hoping she wouldn’t move. I was thrilled – and now I knew she loved me in a very important way…and I realized I loved her in a very important way – so I began filming pieces of a video that I planned to use in my proposal.
SOME THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THIS VIDEO:
-There’s a surprise twist to the story between the first and second vignette
-Corri had NO idea I would be proposing, ever (I’d been referencing Kurt Russell & Goldie Hawn a lot)
-Corri had no indication what this video was about, even as she was watching it (you notice I kept it as vague as possible until near the end)
-She was watching this at 9pm in Central Park…sitting on the bench that you will see (we had gone on a “casual” walk that “happened” to end up there)
-Immediately after the video, I got down on my knee and squeaked out a proposal
**if you watch a couple times, you’ll notice ridiculous things in the background! I LOVE NEW YORK! ;c)
AND…our first picture as an engaged couple (recognize the bunny hat?):
and that led to this…
