Elona and Roman's Amazing Lake Tahoe Proposal

Amazing Lake Tahoe Proposal-184

How We Met:

Roman and I met on New Year’s Eve, well not exactly, I was really good friends with both of his sister years before we started dating. I knew of him but, Iv’e never really talked to him and really knew who he was. On December 31, 2014 I went to a New Year’s party and I saw him, that was first night that he and I had a one on one conversation. That was the night when it all began. I instantly became interested and attracted to him.

When I came home the next day all I could think about is Roman and how happy he made me feel. I couldn’t stop smiling every time I thought about him. From those few conversations that I had with him I was able to see how great of a person he was. I was able to see how caring and thoughtful he was which was one of the most attractive characteristics that I found in him. Ever since that New Year’s Eve night I knew that there was something special about him, that he was one of a kind.

How He Asked:

On September 19, 2015 Roman and I went to one of my favorite places in California, Lake Tahoe. It was a perfect day that started off with a delicious breakfast and consisted of a beautiful ferry ride around the lake, a trip to the Lake Tahoe Village where we sat on bench because our feet were tired, and a pizza takeout order that we we picked up and ate in the car while enjoying the view of the beautiful lake. Around sunset Roman told me that he wanted to find an overlook with a even better view.

This was nothing out of the ordinary because it was something that we really both enjoyed doing, just going to a beautiful place and sitting there and enjoying the company of one another. Once we found a place with the view that we were looking for Roman took me by the hand and started walking towards a beautiful cabin. We walked around the corner towards the deck of the cabin and that is where it happened. I saw a gorgeous set up with a “MARRY ME?” sign. I couldn’t believe me eyes.

I couldn’t believe that the love of my life wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. Roman knelt down on one knee and asked me if I would marry him.

At that moment I was speechless. I was overflow with such happiness and joy that the only thing that I could do was nod. About a minute later is when I whispered in his ear and told him that I would marry him and that I couldn’t wait to be his wife. That was the first time that Roman saw me cry. I was always a person that never let my emotions show but, at that moment I couldn’t hold it in. Everything that I have ever wanted was right in front of me. I was the luckiest girl in the world.
