Sara first met Angelo back in 2005 when both of them were students at Ohio. Angelo attended high school with one of Sara's friend which further led them to cross each other's path.
Back then, the relationship between the two was only limited to "Hi, how are you?" As they both were living in Cleaveland, they saw each other a couple of times at the apartment of the same friend.
After ten years of knowing each other, Angelo finally made his move during the friend's wedding back in 2015. While Angelo was giving a speech roasting the groom on his big day, he took the chance of asking his friend for a fix up with Sara.
Even though most of the guests thought he ruined every chance he had with Sara, she agreed for a dinner date with Angelo. A month later, they went on a dinner at Bourbon Street Barrel Room in Tremont. Their few dates soon turned into a serious relationship.
After dating seriously for a year, Angelo presented Sara with a ring asking her to marry him. Angelo chartered a romantic Lake Erie sunset cruise and proposed his girlfriend on a yacht. That day Sara and Angelo were reliving their first date together and by the end of the day, they were engaged.
Sara took it to Instagram to announce the happy news to her followers. She posted a picture showing off her engagement ring while cherishing the love she shares with Angelo.
