Gianna Seidler & Kyle Lampart
Kyle and I are both avid football fans, so football has always been an integral part of our relationship. I’m a NY Giants fan, and he’s a NY Jets fan, and one of our first dates was the Giants/Jets draft party. We both have season tickets, and spend nearly every Sunday in the fall and early winter at MetLife Stadium, cheering on our respective teams.
On Super Bowl Sunday, the plan was to go to church, grab brunch after, and then head to my parents’ house for a Super Bowl party. The day arrived, and everything went according to plan. We went to church and brunch, and then headed home to relax a little before heading to my parents’. As soon as I walked into the house, I noticed a trail of white rose petals leading into the kitchen. Initially, I thought a vase had fallen and broke (talk about being clueless!), until I walked further and saw the balloons, beautiful floral garland draped on top of the kitchen island, and a perfectly wrapped present. Inside was a gift and a card, which I was instructed to read out loud. The card explained how he could make his dream of becoming the general manager of the NY Jets a reality if he applied certain principles to his life, all of which related to spending his life with me.
At the end of the card, he instructed me to turn around, which I did, and found him down on one knee, asking me to marry him. After tears were shed, lots of screaming on my part, and the the ring was placed on my finger, he pointed to the hidden GoPro, which had captured the entire proposal, as well as the Ring Cam, which held my ring and recorded my reaction! The surprises kept on coming! I then opened the rest of the present, which was a NY Giants jersey with what will soon be my new last name - Lampart! Just when I thought the day couldn’t possibly get any better, we went to my parents’ house for what I thought was a Super Bowl party, but was actually a surprise engagement celebration with all of our closest family and friends! It was, by far, the best day of my life. A true dream come true, and far better than any Giants Super Bowl ring!
