Jennifer and Arturo

How We Met

We met about 9 years ago through a family member and the fact that we were both attending the same university at the time. We instantly connected and remained friends for many years keeping in touch here and there but never actually dated. Eventually we became coworkers and worked together for about a year which is what brought us closer together. Even our coworkers would noticed the “love” between us and how we looked and talked to each other. Finally, 5 years after we met we became boyfriend and girlfriend and have been inseparable ever since.

How He Asked

We had always talked about getting married for years and looked forward to the day that it would actually happen. In April of 2017 we had a big two week trip to Thailand planned with my two best friends and their husbands and we would be traveling to  four different cities within Thailand during our trip. Little did I know that a couple of days before leaving on our trip he had met up with my parents to tell them that he was planning on proposing on our trip and he had also told all of our close friends and family about his plans. On the last Friday of our trip we were on the beautiful island of Koh Samui and we had all decided we would get dressed up and go have a nice dinner and drinks somewhere on the island (the boys hadn’t decided where yet). We all began to walk to dinner and finally arrived to a beautiful resort on the island where you could see the most amazing sunset I had ever seen. I was so busy taking videos and pictures of everything around me that I didn’t even notice everyone else was recording me. We finally got sat in a corner area where it was just us and we began to take pictures, one couple at a time. Then came our turn to take a picture together and as we were getting ready to pose for a picture he began to kiss me on the cheek and before I knew it, he was down on one knee.
