How We Met

When Parham and I first met 10 years ago, I never thought we would be more than acquaintances. About two years ago, on my 25th birthday, he wished me a happy birthday on social media. To my surprise, he also invited me to lunch. At first, I was hesitant to go, but he was so persistent that I eventually agreed.

Sitting across from him during that lunch and listening to him talk about his dreams and life goals, I knew he was very special. Eight months later, Parham saw me walk into a Persian concert and asked our dear friend Armin to ask me to go sit with them during intermission. That night ended up being one of the most magical nights of your lives. We started dating seriously soon thereafter, and the rest is history.

how they asked

A few weeks before the proposal, Parham told me we had been invited to an intimate dinner at our friend’s majestic house on a sprawling Texas ranch. Knowing the lovely Kathy for throwing the most elegant parties, I immediately freaked out over what to wear! I didn’t think much of it when Parham told me she had recommended guests wear light colors to stay cool while enjoying dinner outside.

On May 19, 2018, as the sun was setting, we drove up to their house, and I immediately noticed a stunning canopy set up in the middle of their pond. Parham told me we should sneak in and take a selfie before it got too crowded.

I was completely against it, insisting that we go inside and say hello first. As usual, Parham persisted and got me under the canopy somehow. He got on one knee and asked me to marry him and of course, I said YES!

I was still trying to wrap my head around what had just happened when I saw both of our families walking toward us. That was the most beautiful surprise.

I am so glad Parham included our families and they were able to witness the happiest time of our lives thus far. I couldn’t have asked for a more romantic and perfect proposal. It was beyond anything I had ever dreamed of.
