Alejandro and Leona

How They Asked

The whole proposal was spontaneous.

Leona and I were visiting her family in Croatia. One day I was alone walking at the City center and I fell in love with THE ring, it took me few days to buy it but when I finally decided to do it I FELT that needed to propose on that trip.

Before Croatia, we had a small getaway around a few cities in Europe (Madrid, Lisbon, and Florence). As you can imagine we had an amazing time together and we came to visit her family in Zagreb it was just the right place to do it.

Because I am Mexican I always dreamed about make a proposal with a touch of both cultures (Mexico and Croatia) so I decided to propose Leona at the main Square of Zagreb but with a Mariachi. (I had help from her best friends to contact the only Mariachi from Eastern Europe) .
