Zerina and Belmin

How We Met

We met in September of 2018 in Europe. I was from the United States and getting my MA degree abroad, and he is from Belgium. Our parents are both from the same towns in Bosnia (CRAZY!) & I was on holiday back in my mom’s hometown visiting family and he came down from Belgium to his dad’s hometown to visit his family… and it just so happened that we were in the same place at the same time.. and the RIGHT place at the RIGHT time!! I knew that after one date, I was going to marry him, I got home that night and said that out loud to myself.

How They Asked

Fast forward just short of a year later together before I wrapped up my studies and moved back to the states, we decided to go to Mostar, one of the most tourist attracted places in Bosnia as we had talked about visiting for months and he came to Bosnia to visit me. As we were having dinner overlooking the bridge at sunset outside, he got down on one knee and proposed to me! It was such an unforgettable moment and a true example of FATE bringing two people together no matter the circumstances!
