Kaitlyn rented a summer apartment on Long Beach Island in the summer of 2014. It just happened to be above Vinnie’s tattoo shop. It was July 5 and the fireworks had been cancelled the night before, but were on for that night. All of Kaitlyn’s friends had to go back to work, which meant she was home alone to watch them. So she invited Vinnie up to her deck to watch them with her. They spent the night talking and learning everything they could about each other, and their first date followed a few days later.
Vinnie proposed the following Dec. 31, 2015 in Philadelphia. During fireworks, of course.
