Like any good story, there are two versions of how Ank and Neal fell in love. Each believes the other made the first move, but their good friends know it was really thanks to a fated partnership in the game of pong. Naturally, they moved on to visiting breweries and wineries together, and with time, they became cultured too! There were museum visits, NBA playoffs, world-travels, and plenty of “I don’t know. What do you want to eat?”. Fast forward through college, long-distance medical school, and a couples match to New England for residency, on April 29, 2018, Neal finally decided to pop the question! With the help of family and friends he recreated their first “real” date and set up a picnic at Duke Farms. He left an iPad and headphones on the striped blanket with instructions to click “play”. What followed were video clips of family and friends sharing embarrassing stories and the sweetest messages. To no one’s surprise, he successfully had Ank crying through all fifteen minutes. Neal then got down on one knee…and well, the rest is history!
