how we met
We met at cute and intimate wine bar in San Francisco that has now become one of our favorite date spots. Lisa was about 20 minutes late so I had a bit of a head start to fuel up on some much needed liquid courage. We had both been looking forward to this evening but travel and our schedules had prolonged this fateful night for quite some time. As soon as Lisa walked in, the energy in the room transformed and sparks between us flew instantaneously. We talked for hours exchanging stories, laughs, and finding we shared a lot of common ground on values, interests, and dreams. Before we knew it, we had shut down the bar (our first of many such experiences!) but it didn’t take till the end of the night for me to know she was the one! Three weeks later we were in Hawaii!
how they asked
On the day of the proposal, we spent the afternoon relaxing at the beach (right where I would end up proposing that evening) and soaking in the glorious Positano sun. It was much needed given we had walked tens of miles the previous days exploring the streets of Rome. That night, I had a dinner reservation at Zass (highly recommend) followed by a private boat to Capri the following morning that would be the perfect way to celebrate a successful proposal. That evening, after we got ready for dinner, I nervously escorted Lisa down to the beach for some “sunset photos and a drink” and once we got to the “spot” with the breathtaking backdrop of the Positano hillside and the serenity of the sea to our right, I took a deep breath, got down on one knee and asked Lisa to marry me. It was an ethereal moment for us both… oh and she said yes!!!
