Danielle and Eppie
How We Met
Eppie and I met in the summer of 2014 and have been together ever since. At first , we were long distance, but after a year of Making the most of the time that we could get together, I decided to move closer to him . We became Disneyland annual passholders since one of our 1st dates was to Disneyland and that’s the 1st place where we said our “I love yous”(photo below).
How He Asked
My boyfriend, Eppie, and I had been planning to attend the Disneyland Paris half marathon weekend for months. We completed his first 10K with me and afterwards headed to the theme park to enjoy the day together. We love taking selfies of our travels, and we love going to Disneyland in Anaheim regularly, so when we started taking selfies in front of the castle it felt natural. After I thought that we were done taking pictures, I turned and realize he had his camera and video mode and he turned to me and asked me to be his wife. There were no photographers around (unlike at Disneyland Anaheim where there are so many people available to capture the moment) so he decided to improvise input the camera propped up against his bag then got down on one knee and asked again. It felt so magical and special because he chose to ask me in Paris because he knows how much I love both Disneyland and that city! (Disneyland also feels significant to us because we first said “i love you” on Main Street after the fireworks.) I feel so lucky to have someone who makes me feel so special and once all my dreams to come true!
