Maja & Michael

"We joke that the proposal was more like a "frank conversation", on the sofa while eating cake from Martha's Bakery."

How we met/proposal: We met through one of Maja's best friends, Bri. Bri and Maja had become close as interns together in NY, and eventually became roommates along with their friend Anne, and Anne's then-boyfriend (now-husband) Bryce. Bryce was a good friend and bandmate of Michael's, so we started hanging out in the same circles and eventually started dating in 2016. By 2022 we'd been together for years and planned to get married eventually, so this June we decided to just go for it. We joke that the proposal was more like a "frank conversation", on the sofa while eating cake from Martha's Bakery. Three months later in September we made it happen. In a full circle moment, we asked Bri to be our officiant.⁠

About the rings: We live in Greenpoint, so when Michael saw that a former Pratt classmate, Olivia, had opened a jewelry store in the neighborhood, it felt like the perfect place to design our rings. Olivia and Sue were the absolute best to work with! For Maja's engagement ring, we recycled a gold brooch gifted to us from Michael's mom, that was passed down to her from her aunt. For Michael's band, we replicated the pattern on his dad's wedding ring on an updated design.⁠
