Danielle and Kevin met at the W Hotel in Washington DC. Danielle had just moved there to complete her medical training and was out celebrating her birthday with her friends from NYC. The W was their last stop, her friends wanted to take in the view. Danielle’s friend Stephanie was trying to take a selfie of the two of them when a kind stranger offered to take the pic for them. That stranger was Kevin. Stephanie got the conversation started and then slipped away and left Danielle and Kevin chatting. She learned that he lived in DC for work and was just leaving a party with some friends. Danielle says, “the rest is history”.
Kevin and Danielle have visited the W Hotel in every city they travel to and so, on a trip to Barcelona they planned to have dinner at the W there on their first night. They took a walk on the beach before dinner and stopped to get some photos with the hotel in the background. It was sunset and Danielle describes the sky as a “gorgeous shade of pink”. Kevin asked a woman walking by to take one more picture of them, but he had set the camera on video. As the woman began shooting, Kevin told Danielle, “ok, don’t cry”. Then he got down on one knee and asked Danielle to be his bride. Of course, she said yes!
