HG: What city do you both live in + for how long have you lived there? What’s your favorite part about living here?

HG: Was there an instant connection/chemistry between you two?

JG: Yes — I provided sushi and Danielle was the most beautiful girl I had ever seen.

HG: What are the qualities you love most about each other?

DG: Jeff’s best qualities are how thoughtful he is, how loving he is, and being super handsome.

JG: Danielle is the smartest, kindest person, and it doesn’t hurt that she’s the hottest too.

HG: Tell us about your proposal.

JG: Our first date was at 512 Quantum Sound Lounge in Union City by Danielle’s old apartment. So, for our engagement, I (Jeffrey) picked the date 5/12. I planned out our routine walk before going to dinner at Saku — the place we met. As we walked on the water off of Gregory Avenue in Weehawken, I told her all of the reasons that we were meant to be.

DG: Then, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. The undercover photographer snatched the pictures and then we celebrated the rest of the night at Saku with Mike Deeg playing our love songs and then to Sirenatta for a few more drinks. We celebrated with family for the rest of the weekend.

HG: How long have you been engaged + what has been the best part about it?

DG + JG: We’ve been engaged since May and the best part is being able to call her my fiancé — she loves planning our engagement party and wedding!
