Brigitte and Damian
How We Met
I met Damian online. He was the first person I saw and spoke to. When I met him in person for the first time we hit it off really well. We had a lot in common and wanted the same things in life. I remember thinking to myself, I feel like I have met my double. I knew pretty early on that Damian was the one.
how they asked
It was my birthday and Damian told me he was taking me out for dinner after work to celebrate. He wouldn’t tell me where we were going, only that I should dress ‘fancy’.
When we were ready we go into the car and drove to a park on top of a hill. I thought to myself, we must be going for a walk before dinner. As we walked around he pointed out how great the view was of the Harbour Bridge and of Luna Park. In the distance were a table and two chairs under a big tree decorated with fairy lights. The grass had rose petals and candles scattered around the table and music was playing in the background. Damian said to me, look at that! Doesn’t that look nice? I responded that looks cute! (Having no clue at all). Damian then preceded to tell me “that’s for us!” I couldn’t believe it, I was very overwhelmed that he did all that for me. But it was not over, he wrote me a letter with the most beautiful words about me and how he sees our future together.
The letter concluded with a statement that said I must stand as he had an important question to ask me. When I stood up, Damian got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was an incredible moment that I will remember for the rest of my life.
I still replay the moment in my head from time to time. This recount does not do the moment justice. The images display an accurate play by play of the unfolding proposal and I am so happy that together, Damian and my proposal co. pulled off my dream proposal.
