Dominique and Peter

How We Met

He was my boss. I was his employee. The rest is diner history! I was a waitress in college at Peter’s family restaurant. Peter was my boss, but we would hang out with other employees in a group. I always thought Peter was a gentleman and kind person but realized he was being extra nice to me when a co-worker asked me if I was interested in him! Soon after I said yes, Peter asked me out on our first date, July 21st, 2016. 10 days later, he asked me to be his girlfriend and we have been inseparable ever since!

How They Asked

Peter told me we were going on a quick getaway the week before my birthday at Oheka Castle. We celebrated our one year anniversary at Oheka, so it is a very special place for us. The castle is immaculate, beautiful, and secluded from the rest of the busy suburbs. As we entered the castle and checked in at the front desk, Peter asked to take some selfies of us in the foyer. After a few selfies, he brought me to the bridal staircase. He pretended to take a selfie, then turned towards me. Immediately, I started sobbing!

He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was too caught up crying, kissing, and hugging him for a good five minutes before I even looked at the ring and said yes! We stayed the night at the castle and had a memorable dinner. My King made me his Queen in the Castle!
