Colin and Kim met on New Year’s Eve 2012 at a local restaurant in Brooklyn, not far from where Colin was living at the time. Though neither of them were interested in going out that night, they ended up in the same place. Colin came alone and Kim with two of her friends. Colin had already been out that day and Kim and her friend, Amy, had initially planned to stay home, make pasta and watch the ball drop. Luckily they both found themselves at the Hill Cafe that evening.
Kim’s friends left to get some food while Kim stayed at the bar where she saw Colin for the first time. She was waiting for him to turn around and look at her when finally she said, “hello”. They started talking and a few days later they were on their first date.
What may have been love at first sight for the two of them they didn’t say it until two months later.
After a lovely dinner at the Carlyle Hotel on 76th Street in NYC, Colin took Kim for a walk in front of the Met Museum where they stopped to take in the beauty of the water fountain. At that time,
he stepped back, got down on his knee and asked Kim to marry him. She said YES!
