Q&A: Ray and I





In honor of Valentine's Day I thought I would put together a Q&A about Ray and I. I've received questions from you guys here and there and thought this would be a good opportunity to tell you more about us! 

1. When did you meet? 
December, 2010

2. How did you meet?
I was in my first semester of law school and had just finished my first week of exams. I decided to go for dinner with my friends before hibernating for the rest of the weekend. We had dinner and they convinced me to go across the street to a bar (Burgundy Lion) in Montreal for a drink. Reluctantly I agreed and that's when I met Ray. We started talking and within a few minutes we got into an argument (I can't remember what it was about). We parted ways. The girls asked what happened and I told them and they convinced me that he was actually a great guy and that I should talk to him again. So I did and we ended up talking all night until the bar closed. We took a cab ride home together (Uber didn't exist yet). I asked him if he wanted to come up and he said no but that I should take his number. Take his number?? I was like no way... you can take mine if you want. He responded that his phone was dead. At the same time the cab driver passed a pen back to us (it was like out of a movie). I wrote my number on his hand and said good night. Before I got into bed he had already texted me. The rest is history :)

3. When did you move in together?

Since I was living alone and Ray was living with his brother he would spend a lot of time at my place. He ended up moving in over the summer (but had been spending almost every night with me anyways). 

4. How long did you date until you got engaged?

3 years

5. How did he propose?

We had a trip planned to go to Vegas the morning after I finished the NY bar. As most people know, studying for the bar is the most exhausting few months of your life. I was so relieved to be on vacation and drained from all of the anxiety and studying. That night we went for dinner in the hotel. Ray was drinking plenty (from all the nerves lol) but I was too tired to really drink. We got up to the room and he handed me the key. In my mind I figured he was too drunk to open the door. I walked into the room and saw rose petals on the bed. My initial reaction was that it was a romantic gesture from the hotel. I then turned to Ray and he was on one knee with the ring. I looked back at the bed and the rose petals spelled "will you marry me?"

6. Where did you get married?

We got married at a restaurant called Bice in Montreal. 

7. Where did you honeymoon?

We actually hadn't planned on a honeymoon. Since we had just moved to LA we thought it would be best to wait a few months before planning a trip. We got married on a Saturday and went back to work on Monday. By Thursday I thought, this is enough! We had just spent the entire year planning this momentous occasion and now were just back to work...no way. And so on Thursday we planned our honeymoon to Bali and left on the Saturday. That is right, we planned our honeymoon in 2 days! For anyone getting married I highly suggest planning even just a mini moon to have the time to enjoy and celebrate rather than go straight back to work.

8. How long have you been married?

2 1/2 years (our anniversary is August 16)

9. Are you planning on having kids?

Yes but not in the near future. 

10. What about another dog?

I hope so!

Here is a link to our wedding video trailer :). I hope you enjoyed learning a little more about us. As always, feel free to send me an email or DM, or leave a comment below if you have any questions! xoxo
