How We Met

We studied at the same University where we joined a College Group. Being in the Group, we got to spend some time together until one day, when we were at a party we started talking about the moon being alone by the pool. After that small talk, we started dancing a lot and soon we felt the chemistry between the two of us. In the end, close to midnight It finally happened. We kissed and this beautiful story began.

How They Asked

We arrived at a place in front of the beach where we found a rotunda. There was a beautiful arrangement with a table surrounded by candles, petals, and a lot of details which represent something special in our relationship.

Among the objects present, there was a moon representing the small talk that leads to the beginning of our relationship, two crystal elephants that represent the most faithful, intelligent, and family-kind of animal, and my favorite drink and dish: a rosé wine sangria and a cheese platter.

When we got to the table he showed me a video that started displaying amazing moments that we have experienced together and then had recordings of him proposing throughout the year, from April to December, without my noticing. He recorded those videos behind my back and it was wonderful seeing all the time he spent planning and executing this proposal.

After watching the video, he grabbed something from his jacket and told me some beautiful words, got on his knee, and asked me in Spanish: “¿Te quieres casar conmigo?” Would you marry me? And I answered: “Claro” of course. Then we enjoyed our dinner and closed the night with some astonishing photos.
