Christina and Alex
how they asked
First and foremost Alex and I have always been the best of friends. There is no one I laugh harder with, enjoy the simple things with, or adore more than I do this man. I could never imagine that he could be more perfect, or make me feel like more of a princess than he already does…until the day that he asked me to be his wife. We planned a trip to Excellence Playa Mujeres Resort in Mexico for our third year anniversary.
We flew out on a Sunday morning, and when we got there it was his idea to plan a romantic beach dinner for our anniversary night, which was Tuesday, July 11, 2017. The resort was impeccable to say the least which served as the perfect setting for this unforgettable moment in both of our lives. On the eve of July 11, 2017, we made our way to the lobby to find the concierge with a bouquet of roses waiting to show us the way to our dinner. As we held hands walking to the beach I had no idea what was coming for me.
It was about 7:30 pm so the sun was just beginning to set and the view was incredible. The waves were crashing, and the sun was reflecting off of my handsome’s face…I thought I had everything I could ever want in that moment. The photographer made his way to our table and asked to take a few shots of us before dinner, and of course we said yes! Once he shot a few poses he said, “I don’t mean to bother you but may I take a picture of you both near the water?” Alex and I made our way towards the water and as I went to pose I realized that he was just standing there awkwardly.
I looked at him with a face like, “Ummm, are we going to pose what’s going on here?” Once he reached into his pocket little did I know I REALLY didn’t know what was going on! As soon as I saw him pull out the box my heart sunk in the best way ever.
Instant tears of joy came to my eyes, I couldn’t believe that the day I have dreamed about since I was a little girl was happening right before my eyes.
Alex got down on one knee as the photographer continued to take photos and said, “Do you know what would make this moment even more picture perfect? If you would spend the rest of your life with me.” Of course, I said YES!
As I hugged him all I could think was how grateful I was to have this man that loves me and perfects every detail of every experience we live together. Especially this one. After all, my best views in life are with him by my side. I am so over the moon to be the Future Mrs. Alex Montero…living my own little fairy-tale with my best friend in this entire world.
