Emily and Niles met through their church, eventually discovering they shared a workplace, leading to a shared lunch, and then of course a date. Last fall, Niles took Emily on a trip to the beach and surprised her by kneeling down to ask her the question. Her immediate response was a smile and a yes. This is just one of the characteristics I noticed about Emily, that her reply always comes with a smile and a ‘yes’, which is definitely what Niles was hoping for in asking her to be his wife. He didn’t have to worry though, since even though her first reply was a quick yes, she had him do it all over again so that she could say it again and they could really remember it.
