Joy Proposal Story: Iva & Daniel

by Cali Pitchel

How did the two of you meet?

We met during one wonderful summer eight years ago. It was during our regular vacation in Varna, Bulgaria, where we both grew up. We would go to the same places and we would constantly run into each other – on the beach, in the bars, etc. One day he finally approached me and asked for my name and phone number. In this particular time, he was living in Amsterdam and I in Madrid. A couple of months later, we met in Amsterdam, where I was visiting a friend of mine. It was there where we thought that there is something special between us.

Tell us the proposal story! We want all the details!

He proposed to me during our trip to New York. We were both traveling, and we decided to meet there and spend a couple of days in NYC. He arranged wonderful flowers and a plate of fruits and cheese to wait for me in the hotel when I arrived. Then he surprised me by arriving earlier than planned and asked me if I want to marry him. He organized different activities for the day and said he wanted it to be unforgettable for me – we went to have breakfast in Russ & Daughters Cafe and afterwords had a carriage ride in Central Park. In the evening we went to a comedy show and had a romantic candle dinner in Manhattan.

What’s been your favorite part of wedding planning?

The best experience for both of us was to manage to bring together all our friends from all over the world. We both lived in many different places during the years and having all our friends join us on that day is the main reason for the wedding party.

We are not under pressure. We think if you start organizing a wedding in time, you can take care of everything.
