How We Met
Nav and I meet through mutual friends. It was a warm summer’s evening and I was invited to a friend’s house for a BBQ. I really wasn’t up for it, I had worked all day and just wasn’t in the mood for a party. But my best friend convinced me to come anyway. Since it was such a beautiful evening, I decided to pop my head in, thinking it couldn’t hurt to sit outside in the afternoon sun for a few hours.
When I got to my friend’s house Nav was already there. He was talking to his friends out in the garden and my eye caught sight of him right away! He was so handsome and had something special about him that mesmerized me, I could not take my eye off him. I had never met him before but it really felt like love at first sight!
Nav, however, seemed to busy chatting with his mate to notice me! So I tried to not pay too much attention to him – which was hard haha! Little did I know, he had seen me just a few days before at a concert I had been to with my friends. He was there with his friends, but I had been too occupied with the concert to see him. He had asked his friends about me the whole week after that. That was why my friend hosted this BBQ so that Nav would finally get to speak to me!
So when I arrived, Nav was trying to play it cool! Maybe, a little too cool! It wasn’t until later that evening he finally came up to me and introduced himself and we started chatting!
It’s been the two of us ever since!!
How They Asked
Nav flew me out to Paris as a surprise! I love Paris, it’s my favorite city in the world!
We checked in to The Shangri-La Hotel in Paris, where Nav had booked the most beautiful room with a terrace overlooking the Eiffel Tower. It was amazing! The sun was shining and it was just the perfect spring day in Paris.
Nav said he wanted to take me shopping, so off we went! After a few hours of shopping, I was really tired and wanted to go back to the hotel. But Nav insisted we should stay out longer – I could not in my wildest imagination understand why!
But while we were out the amazing girls from The Proposers came in and completely transformed our room. They decorated it with rose petals, photos, balloons, lanterns and an abundance of flowers. They were absolutely incredible.
When Nav finally let me go back to the hotel, he seemed very nervous! When we opened the door to our room, romantic music started playing and a rose petal walkway and balloons were leading me down the stairs, out onto the terrace.
On the terrace, the amazing photographer from Adagion Studio was waiting for us, with more balloons and the most amazing views. Need I say I was so surprised when I step onto the terrace and saw the balloons spelling out “Will You Marry Me” and when I turned around, Nav was down on one knee with the most amazing ring!
It really was my dream proposal come true. The photographer took lots of photos of us afterward and we even had a macaron tower from Laduree. On the macarons, it said Jess heart Nav and Will You Marry Me! It was the most amazing day!
My Paris proposal just simply could not have been any better!! It really was a dream come true!
Thank you to the amazing supplier who helped make this day super special!
