“I was completely shocked!" Sullivan recalled. "Romeo told me we were going to dinner at a nice restaurant near Central Park, and that I had to wear something fancy. My sister was in town and leaving that day, so he suggested we show her around the park before dinner. When we got to the location, this amazing photographer (Sarah Heilbronner) was pretending to do a photo shoot and generously asked us if we wanted a picture! That is when he dropped down on one knee. It was perfect.”

Alexander confessed he thought "Caroline had already figured everything out," however, he was determined to "confuse her in order to keep an element of surprise."
