Franklin Park Zoo, Boston, MA - Proposal

Michael Teichberg of Guaynabo, P.R., filled us in on how he proposed to Rachel Hahn of Woodmere, N.Y. "She is pre-veterinarian and her favorite animals are giraffes, so I arranged to have a private feeding/petting of the giraffes at the Franklin Park Zoo on April 25, 2009. I brought her to the zoo on the pretenses that it was my company's Family Day. After 30 minutes of talking to the trainer and being with the animals, the trainer asked if we had any other questions. Rachel said no and asked if I had anything else to ask. So I said, 'Actually, I do,' and that's when I got down on one knee and popped the question. When we got back home from the zoo I had her mother, grandmother, sister, best friend, and my friends waiting for us in our condo. She cried at the zoo and when we got home so I knew I did well. She never cries."
