Vanessa and Kevin

how we met

We met on Tinder. We worked in buildings across the street from each other but lived 50 miles apart. I (bride) was traveling a lot for work so we met at the Starbucks by our office for our first “date” and the next few. It wasn’t until a month later we finally went on a real date up in San Francisco. We dated “long distance” having the best of both works. Kevin lived close to the office and Vanessa lived up in San Francisco.

how they asked

We take a big trip every year in May. In 2019 we went to Portugal. We flew into Lisbon, renter a car and drove up to Porto, where we had dinner reservations at a super fancy Michelin restaurant. Kevin wanted to get drinks before, and talked Vanessa out into the balcony for a drink with a view. After some very sweet words, and an interruption from Vanessa asking if he was proposing, Kevin got down on one knee. We enjoyed an amazing meal after where Vanessa cried for 2 hours straight.

Special Thanks
