Shadasia and Khalil
How We Met
We definitely didn’t have the “Fairytale I fell in love at 1st sight moment”; in all actuality, it was the complete opposite! We met at an event that we were both working, Khalil was the Owner of a Red Carpet Express which is an event rental company and I was a Red Carpet Correspondent (ironic right?) While we were working together I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to make some friends in the media industry, however Khalil was in a totally different mindset and wasn’t trying to engage in “small talk.”
I did take offense because while I was just being a friendly person he was completely standoffish. Needless to say, it wasn’t the perfect “how we met story”, and around the 4th event we worked together the night ended with me calling him an asshole HA! To my surprise me being so upfront and blunt with him was one of the reasons he became attracted to me; & because he wasn’t the nicest person to me when we met, I gave him the runaround for a few months before I agreed to go on a 1st date.
How They Asked
Khalil surprised me with a sunrise photo shoot on Mt. Batur which is a Volcanic Mountain in Bali, Indonesia. I was under the impression that our Airbnb host gifted us with a photoshoot but to my surprise, Khalil was behind the entire thing!
While I was posing for a photo my back was turned and the photographer asked me to turn around so he could get a shot of my dress in the wind; the moment I turned around I saw Khalil on one knee and I instantly burst into tears! It was the most amazing moment in my life so far, his attention to detail and planning was impeccable, so honored to marry the man of my dreams!
