How They Met | Valerie and Michel met three years ago on a dating app. Both had signed up for the app on the same day, only spoke to each other and deleted it the next day. When it came to their engagement, Valerie describes it as pure magic! Knowing how much she loves the holidays, Michel tricked Valerie into planning a trip to New York City just after Christmas.
Once there, he took her to the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree and proposed right underneath. It was the first thing they did when they got there, as he couldn’t wait another minute. When they got back to the hotel, Michel arranged to have champagne waiting for them, with her parents on standby next to their phone to announce the big news.
