Bobby and Sheida
How We Met
Our journey started when I decided to take a break from studying and go on a blind date with Bobby. Little did I know that it would be the last first date I will ever go on. Not only was Bobby a complete gentleman (which was a breath of fresh air), but I also quickly discovered how similar we are in every way and had so much in common. We had such a fun night. I never wanted the date to end. A year and half later I still feel like we are on our first date.
We have been inseparable ever since that day. We have traveled the world together and experienced so many amazing moments with each other. He is truly my best friend and my partner in every way. We have spent every minute of our time outside of school and work together since our first date and I wouldn’t have it any other way. There is no one else in the world that makes me feel the way Bobby does.
how they asked
In July of 2017, Bobby surprised me with a trip to Greece! We have talked about visiting Greece for a while and he knew that visiting Santorini was a dream vacation for me.
Before we left, he told me he had planned a romantic dinner for us and picked out a dress that would be appropriate for the date. He always makes very romantic gestures so planning a nice dinner for us was not out of the ordinary for him.
When we got to the hotel where our “dinner” was supposed to be, we saw a couple of photographers taking photos of the incredible views of Santorini. Bobby said to me, “I should ask them to take a photo of us with my phone”.
The photographers told us how nice we looked and offered to take professional photos of us at the hotel since they had a little free time. Of course I was not going to let an impromptu photo shoot opportunity pass me by so we agreed and started to take pictures.
About 20 minutes into the photo shoot the photographer asked us to go by the pool to get the best view.
That’s when Bobby got on one knee and asked me to be his best friend and wife forever with the most beautiful ring I have ever seen. It was the most magical moment of my life. Everything was just perfect.
He had arranged for a beautiful bouquet of my favorite flowers and a private dinner overlooking the caldera. I was swept away and was truly speechless. He then showed me video messages our families had recorded prior to our engagement to congratulate us and welcome us into each other’s family.
I was so overwhelmed with so many emotions and felt like the luckiest girl in the world. It was then when it hit me that I was going to spend the rest of my life with my best friend who makes me laugh like no other and who I am so deeply in love with.
