Juliana and Tati
How We Met
“We met through a mutual friend. From the first day we hung out, I knew she was the one.” – Juliana
How She Asked
“I began planning my proposal to Tati months before we embarked on our trip to Greece. I knew this moment had to be perfect. I hired a photographer Flytographer and began looking for the ring. Once I found the ring, I was informed the ring was no longer available and there was only 2 left. I was in a bidding war with a stranger, who happened to be Tati, for the SAME RING! After a few weeks of going back and forth with @bluenile, the ring arrived at the house. I asked Tati’s mom to hide the ring for me, without knowing Tati had asked her to do the same!
Fast forward to our trip… We arrived in Santorini, I anxiously waited for Friday the 7th to approach. I kept reminding myself to pay it cool so Tati wouldn’t catch on. The day had arrived, throughout the morning I kept insisting that we head back to the hotel in order to freshen up and head over to the Skaro’s rock to see the sunset.
We arrived at the location 2 hours before the set time I had arranged with the photographer. We chose to head over to a rooftop bar and grab a few drinks until it was time to head down to see the “sunset”. It was time…… The photographer texted me saying to start making our way down slowly. With every step, I took my heart began to palpitate vigorously. I needed this moment to be everything she ever dreamed. We reached the chapel in front of Skaro’s rock, Kimonas (Flytographer) was there pretending to be a tourist and waiting for my cue to approach us.
I asked Tati to take a selfie with me to signal Kimonas to come over. He asked if we would like him to take a picture of us on my phone, then shortly after asked if we would like him to take a picture with his camera and I rushed to say yes. I quickly put my fanny pack on the side and tried to put the ring box in my back pocket without Tati noticing. We got into position for the picture and that’s when I looked at her and said, “You know I love you, right?” Tati immediately caught on and asked, “Wait are you proposing right now?” I kneeled down and said, “Yes, will you marry me?”. She quickly reached in her purse and pulled out a box and said: “Only if you marry me?” – Juliana
