How we met It was a Saturday night when we met for the first time, in a disco club. I saw Milena entering the club and I remember I remained blocked watching her for a few minutes. She has been so beautiful. Then she lost in the crowd and I started looking for her all night. No sign of her. But destiny brought us to intersect exactly when she wanted to leave. I stopped her respectfully; I just wanted to know her name. She was friendly and told me her name, very shortly, and than she left. It was difficult to keep it in my mind because it was an uncommon name in Romania. I immediately searched her on Facebook and I sent her a friend request. The next day she accepted my request, we started talking through messages and I invited her out in the evening. Since then we became inseparable, we have met every day. After 3 weeks I told her ‘I love you’, after 3 months we moved in together and after 1 year and a half I have proposed to her.
how they asked: I decided to propose Milena in our vacation to South Africa. So I start looking for ideas. I wanted to be something special. That’s how I found The Perfect Proposal on the Internet and I immediately realized that this is what I was looking for. I contacted them with 3 months in advance. I have decided to go with The Perfect Proposal because I couldn’t make everything by my own, is pretty difficult to arrange the set up alone without any suspicion, especially if you want to do an surprising and unforgettable event. In the big day, after a lovely walk and an excellent lunch in Cape Town, I suggested going at Clifton Beach. There we found a guitarist singing our favorite songs near a very romantic setting with champagne, excellent food, sweets, roses, all of them besides a very nice umbrella and a sign ‘‘marry me Milena”.
She was so shocked; she didn’t suspect anything, neither in South Africa, or at home. The photographer was there hidden behind a rock to capture the proposal. Once the great answer came and we have popped the champagne, the photographer came to make some shots of us walking along the beach, ring shots, posing with the sea behind and more. We had a table booked for us for the evening celebration at one of the best restaurant in Cape Town where we had a great time with live music and excellent food. That day has been the most beautiful one for us so far.
