How did the two of you meet?
We worked together and would occasionally wave as we passed each other, sometimes adding in a polite “hello”. We didn´t officially meet and talk until a year later but we were both in relationships at the time. Both relationships ended almost at the same time and three months later, we started talking. After work one day I give him a ride home, because of the traffic we were forced to talk for almost an hour. This was the first time we had a real conversation with each other and we started dating a month after that. We moved in together a year later and we’re now getting married almost two years later!
Give us the proposal details! When? Where? How?
Ernesto took me on a romantic trip to Tepoztlan, two weeks after Valentine´s Day. We had a spa weekend to relax and enjoy each other. One night, he prepared a special dinner on the terrace of our amazing room, including a personal chef and a waiter! We started talking about our love story and before I knew it he was on one knee crying, asking me to marry him.
