Genevieve and Ramone

How We Met

The first time I spoke to Genevieve we were at Costco, and normally when I go grocery shopping I have my headphones in, as I want to be in and out as quick as possible, so to avoid interaction I always play music while shopping. Safe to say my method did not work this time around, as she approached me and said hi, and we spoke briefly (I might add that we had seen each other around all the time, but never actually spoken to each other), but I remember after that conversation being very impressed at how bold she was and how her beautiful smile left me feeling at ease..

How They Asked

Months after that initial conversation we hadn’t spoken at all, but I was good friends with a friend of hers, and so, as a result, we would frequently hang out in groups with our mutual friends. As a result we started talking, and then exchanged contacts and would check on each other here and there, but as time went by our conversations would progressively become longer, funnier, and I was particularly amazed at how things flowed, the way we could speak for hours without realizing it, and before I knew it, I realized I was falling in love with her.

The funny thing is this, years before I started to Genevieve, she remembers a time where she saw me and told herself that she was going to marry me one day, even without really knowing me or having a conversation with me.

Not surprising, that she was the one to ask me to start dating her, and she had the most romantic way of doing so, that left me blown away and impressed. I know that when proposing to her it had to special, not just because she is special, but how I proposed had to reflect how I felt about her.

The lights symbolize how she has lit up my life, as before her I was in a way in the dark, she illuminated my path with her beautiful qualities and her smile are like beams of joy to the world. I thank God for bringing us together and for making it snow on that night, it made things extra special, and I thank everyone as well who assisted.

14 days to go until I marry the love and light of my life, and I am so excited to be with you for eternity. I love you so much. Thank you for making my life more meaningful and I promise to always love you.”
