How We Met

We met on Instagram, I got featured on a Star Wars fan page wearing R2-D2 swimsuit and Chris liked that photo and followed my profile. We both LOVE Star Wars so much. After while we started liking each others photos, chat, soon sending to each other videos from our everyday life, Face Timing and 6 months later we decided to meet in person. Chris flown from California all the way to Europe, and our first date was in London :) It was wonderful seeing him at the airport for the first time. We have visited Harry Potter Warner Bros studios, The Shard, took train to Cardiff, Wales to see Doctor Who museum and continued exploring wonderful stuff together. It felt like he was the missing piece in my life and I was finally whole. We also flown to my home town in Czech republic and Chris loved Prague (but he didn’t quite enjoyed our Czech cuisine haha).

How He Asked

This December (2015) I flown to California to enjoy holidays with my love and after arrival we spent two days in Anaheim Disneyland in which I have never been before. I was pretty excited!

On the second day, after we saw absolutely beautiful fireworks and got a bit wet from the rain, Chris took me to a part of Disneyland called “It’s a small world”, then he said we will take some pictures together and our two friends Alex and Cristina got the camera ready.

Next thing I saw was that he knelt down on one knee and I could see THE ring!! I was SO happy in that moment that I literally jumped with joy :D Then all I wanted to do was to kiss the hella out of him and hug him and never let him go. The employees of Disneyland saw the proposal and brought us hats with ears with captions “She said YES” for Chris and “I said YES” for me. We also got special seats to see the amazing Paint the night parade up close! I am the luckiest girl now and cannot wait to spend my life with the most wonderful man I know.
