How did your love story begin?


We met back in 2009. It was realy Love at first sight. Since we met, we've have been friends for a few weeks until we've realize that we are made for each other.

Tell us all about the proposal.


December 2015 , Christmas day,
I'm in the hospitality industry . I had to work unfortunately on this day. I came home from work and all our family members were together and being festive.
I was just in time for handing out gifts, my husband
gave me a present...... it felts like an empty box.
It was wraped in 10 diffrent type of papers.
Eventualy I managed to open it and received the most beautifull ring with my husband on his knees in tears poping the questions. The most amazing day of my life.
