One month later, Moore and DiMicco made another trip to the park before Moore’s mother’s birthday celebration later that day. The couple was joking around and taking silly pictures on their phones when they reached the gazebo. Suddenly, Moore spun DiMicco around, saying “I have a question for you.” While on one knee, he pulled a small box — containing a beautiful engagement ring — that had been carefully tucked into his sock. DiMicco, at a complete loss for words, managed to say “yes” as the two hugged. Little did she know that Moore had hired their mutual friend — and professional photographer — Tatiana Hitzel to capture the moment. The couple had an impromptu engagement photo shoot immediately following the proposal.
“He’s always had the memory of an elephant, so it didn’t surprise me that he kept what I’d said in mind when he planned the proposal. It just affirms to me how amazing of a man he is, and just how lucky I am to be his wife in just a few months,” DiMicco says.
DiMicco and Moore are in the process of planning a low-budget, cost-effective, DIY wedding with a rustic, vintage setting in Marlboro where they both grew up. The ceremony will be held at DiMicco’s church, St. Mary’s, with a reception to follow at the hall. The couple hopes to create a romantic ambience in the church with hydrangeas, candles, lanterns, and lace. Their wedding will truly be a family affair, with DiMicco’s mother baking the wedding cake and Hitzel snapping the photos.
