Natalie and Paolo's Proposal in Prague

How We Met: Paolo and I met 3 years ago through Match.com! He shot me a message while on a business trip in New York City and we typed back and forth about our love of music festivals. I was so excited when he asked me to go see a movie with him the following weekend when he came back to Florida. When the day finally came, the second I saw this tall handsome dimple faced boy round the corner, I was smitten — and I’ve been ever since!

how they asked: On the first night in Prague, Paolo wanted to take a sunset walk with me before dinner to celebrate our first overseas trip together. While I was supremely jetlagged, I thought it was a sweet idea and got ready for a night out. We caught a quick car ride to Strelecky Ostrov, a gorgeous grassy park-like island in the middle of the Vltava River overlooking the Charles Bridge. As we approached a sandy beach at the island’s edge, Paolo held me close while we laughed and looked at all of the paddle boats and took in the golden view. After a few moments of silence, he turned to me, took my hands in his, and told me how much he loved me. He started recounting all of our memories from the past 3 years, everything from moving cross country together, to our first magical trip together to Yosemite, to our first time snowboarding together this past winter in Lake Tahoe. . .and now, he said, he wanted to add another incredible memory to our love story. . .
