Emily and John

How We Met

John and Emily met in an acting class in Sherman Oaks, Ca six years ago. John being a professional wrestler (Rocky Romero) was working on his craft and Emily who now has a career as a fashion public relations specialist intended to meet people; as she had just moved to town not knowing anyone. They shared there first kiss in front of the class and a few weeks later John FINALLY asked Emily out on her 22nd birthday. Six years later they have traveled all around the world together, adopted there rescue dog Duke, and Emily continues to support John by cheering him on in the crowds. Emily currently runs “Rocky’s” merchandise website RockyRomeroMerch.com as a way to combine their two worlds into one.

Proposal Ideas At our home in Studio City

Where to Propose in At our home in Studio City

How He Asked

It was a rainy Los Angeles day (the only one) and I told him how much I love this weather and it’s the perfect weather in my eyes. (He was planning the proposal anyway) I also told him I was coming home from work early so we could watch the thunderstorms together. So he was freaking out he wasn’t going to finish setting up in time.

He met me in our garage to greet me with our puppy duke and while I was walking down the hall into the apartment he started to record me on his phone and I walked into our hallway filled with Balloons and a note tied to the bottom of each one and a room lit of candles and beautiful flower arrangements.
