How We Met
Sara and I have known each other for 9 years through business. Sara is from California and I was living in Texas. Sara works for a digital marketing company that provided customer acquisition growth for our business. As digital marketing professionals, we attended the same conferences several times a year and ended building a close friendship. As friends, it took a mutual acquaintance to point out that we had a spark between one another. We have been together ever since.
How They Asked
We started planning a trip to Paris in January arriving in the middle of June and as our relationship grew, I knew that Paris was the place that I wanted to propose. Planning a destination wedding proved to be challenging. Sara’s favorite place is Versailles but because of the sheer size, coordinating a tour guide with a photographer felt a little to open to mistakes. I ended up hiring an engagement planner named Karina (Picture Me Paris!), and after exchanging several emails, we had a plan. She helped me work through the details, including getting Sara dressed up for the event, and everything went perfectly. As an added detail, she suggested a violinist which added to the ambiance. Her pictures captured the rest!
