Joy and Alejandro

How We Met

Alejandro and I met in May of 2011. I forced our mutual friend to introduce us since Alejandro was a bit shy and I really wanted to talk to him. Once we did, it was as if we had known each other forever. We just clicked! We are both family oriented and our cultures are very similar. (I am Filipino and Alejandro is Mexican). We have so many things in common, from food to sports and adventure and to exploring the city and places together. Despite myself being a little bit older lol!I know it sounds so cliché but it was an instant connection. We were inseparable since!

how they asked

Alejandro and I decided to move in together after a year and a half of dating. Since we’re always together, it just made a lot of sense. He proposed to me on my birthday at our home. I was obsessed with watching youtube vlogs so he proposed to me by making a video of pictures of us together with things that describes me and what he loves about me and posting it on youtube. He told me he found this new channel with great videos and little did I know, he was going to ask me to marry him. Once I saw the question “will you marry me?”, I looked at him and he was down on one knee and with a ring in his hand. I was so speechless! I don’t even remember what I said exactly since I was crying so much but ofcourse I said YES!
