Our story begins in San Francisco in the year 2016. Like many modern couples we found each other on the Internet and after a few rounds of online repartee Sam asked Meghan out on a first date. We met on a rainy night in November for a drink at The House of Shields. Unbeknownst to her, Meghan made a good impression early in the evening when she ordered an Old Fashioned – one of Sam’s favorite cocktails. We both knew it was a great first date when we closed down the bar and realized we had been talking for six hours. Four years later, we’ve made lots of memories on road trips across the state, train trips across the country, and plane trips around the world. In December of 2019 Sam popped the question over Old Fashioneds at the House of Shields where it all began. We can’t wait for this exciting new chapter in our lives to begin!
