Biagio asked Laura to take the day off from work on Friday July 2, 2010 so they could enjoy a long weekend at her family’s lake house for the 4th of July. Since the lake has been part of Laura’s family for over 50 years and holds a very special place in Laura’s heart, Biagio knew this was the perfect locale for a proposal. The two spent the day at the lake relaxing and enjoying their time on the boat when Biagio read out loud a beautiful letter he wrote for Laura and then got down on one knee and proposed. “The day was picture perfect and very special,” noted Laura. “Not only did we become engaged but it was also my parent’s wedding anniversary of 33 years!” The newly engaged couple is very excited for their June 2011 wedding, which will be held at The Palace at Somerset Park in Somerset, New Jersey.
