How We Met

The very first time I meant Mar was at a local store in Miami and from the very first time I laid eyes on her I realize that she was special. Everything became naturally, The way we talked, The way we laughed, The way we joked like we knew each other forever. The more time I spent with you the more I wanted to be with her. She always went out her way for me and I notice that and that meant a lot to me. Our feelings grew stronger and next thing you know we started dating.

how they asked

I have been planning a surprise proposal since December of 2016. I got in contact with a great photographer named Eva who lives in Venice. She was very helpful and knew what spots were great for a proposal. I had an idea after looking on her website and what spot I wanted to propose. I gave her my idea and she thought it was great spot. My plan was to take a trip with my fiance to Italy as we visited Rome, Florence, Venice. During this whole trip we visited and explored amazing places and ate fantastic food! I told Mar that we would be taking a photo shoot in Venice because in 4 and half years that we have been dating we never took any professional photos. She thought it was a good idea. My plan was to tell Mar this so she can get properly ready with her Hair, Makeup, Outfit the day I want to propose to her. The day we got to Venice I was looking for the area what I would propose to which would be located in San Giorgio as we passed by it while we were riding the water taxi . We enjoyed Venice walked around ALL day and explored all around the beautiful Venice. The night before the proposal I was talking to Eva as we verified the location and time and she asked if I had any questions. I was not nervous but I was anxious for the next day to arrive I just could not wait! The next morning in Venice we got up and started to get ready for this professional photo shoot that we were going to take in Venice. we took a water taxi to San Giorgio. Once we arrived we walked together straight down San Giorgio took photos of each other and walked back down to the spot I was going to propose. I was thinking this is it as we kept walking back from San Giorgio to the the spot I am going to propose at I saw my photographer as she was posing at a “Tourist” which Mar had no idea. I took Mar to the spot of the proposal and Mar kept asking me questions about where is the photographer? Why are we standing here? Asking 21 questions as women tend to do lol. I told Mar can we just enjoy the view and she laughed and said yes. That is when I got down on my knees and propose to her. My photographer came and started taking photos instantly. As I got on one knee and talk to Mar about how much I love her and how much we been through so much and that I would love to marry she started crying when I was done talking and ask will you marry me. Mar said Yes.
