How We Met

Rissa & I met at a college party 5 years ago. We began dating, fell in love & graduated together earning our bachelor’s degree. We decided to make an YouTube channel together and within a few months we became a popular couple on social media. Last year was the birth of our first child together which made us not a couple anymore but a family. On May 12 in dubai I proposed to Rissa in a spectacular fashion & she said yes!

How They Asked

I proposed to my fiancé in the maiden Shanghai restaurant at five Palm Jumeirah. I rented out the restaurant for the night of May 12 & had it decorated with thousands of roses, candles & balloons. I told Rissa that we were just going on a romantic date night with just us two. She was extremely excited about the date night because we hadn’t been able to go on a date for a few months due to being new parents & being busy with work.

I convinced her to get a nice fancy dress & her makeup done by the top makeup artist in Dubai. Before we arrived at our destination I had Rissa put on a blindfold so that I could guide her to the ultimate surprise! I had a videographer & photographer capture every moment from our arrival to the proposal. Our family watched as I popped the question & the night was beyond beautiful! She said yes!!
