Camila and Joel
How we met
Joel and I are high school sweethearts. We have know each other since we were in high school and have been together ever since. It is so amazing knowing someone as well as we do. In fact it was amazing Joel was able to keep the proposal a secret.
How He Asked
Joel and I had planned a trip to Europe last April and one of the stops was Venice. Joel told me we were going to take a gondola ride throughout the quiet canals in Venice. When we got to the gondola there was a photographer on board, she said that she would take some photos of us and that if we liked them we could buy them at the end of the ride. Little did I know it was all planned.
When we rounded a corner I saw a white piece of fabric fall from a bridge. I was shocked to see what it said. “Camila will you marry me?”.
My mouth dropped open as Joel got onto a knee and asked me to marry him!
When we passed under the bridge petals dropped down and then tears came to my eyes. It was so perfect, I was so surprised and delighted. It was the most romantic proposal ever.
After the proposal I met Amber, the event planner that Joel had contacted months before. She helped me create this romantic day. We then took some more photos around San Marco. It was perfect.
