How We Met

We had initially met online through a mutual friend. We would always regularly keep in touch. A couple of months later, I planned to make US trip to meet Poushali. It was love at first sight, our first kiss was in a romantic setting at Venice Beach, as the sunset across the horizon on a hot Californian summers day. Our love for one another has blossomed ever since. Despite being in a long distance relationship, our love remained strong. We are embarking on the next stage of our journey by getting married and finally being able to be together in one location!

how they asked

We have been doing long distance for about 5 years now. I live in Sydney, Australia and she lives in Canada (studying). Her family is based in East LA and I was doing my bi-annual trip to California to see her and her family. This proposal has been a long time coming since at the time, she was 1 year away from graduating and wanted to get married straight after.

I told my girlfriend that I signed us up for a Photo Tour in LA which would start off at Manhattan Beach Botanical Gardens. The photographer we met there pretended to be our tour guide, taking us to beautiful areas around the garden. On my pre-organized cue, I dropped to my knee to propose. She said YES!!!!
