Their first date

They first met through a mutual friend while having lunch in High school in September 2008. They shared jokes which later grew to “best friends” at the end of the same year.

Dating and proposal

Susan never thought of a proposal on Zach’s birthday, at the beach, despite the six years of dating. “Surprisingly, the ring never fell on the sand” Susan notes
