How He Asked

It’s been 6 months today since my handsome mister took me on a surprise trip to Venice, Italy and asked me to be his wifey.. I can’t believe how time has flown. It feels like just the other day where we explored all the historic buildings, hand crafted churches and the canals. We experienced some of the local food, tried almost every flavor of gelato and got lost in alleyways surrounded by some of the most beautiful architecture. August 10th 2015 I woke up having no idea my life would be forever changed, a dream was about to come true.  We arrived at Piazza San Marco Square where we met with a tour guide and photographer that Dom had secretly organized. I was under the impression that the photographer would be taking pictures for us to send out as postcards to our family and friends. We had a delightful time exploring the city as the photographer clicked away, little did I know Dom had THEE ring in his pocket the whole time. We then went on a romantic sunset gondola ride through the heart of Venice.  He had organized a speaker on the gondola and played some of our favorite songs.The next moment he was on his knee asking for my hand in marriage.

Every part of it was magical.  He really went out of his way to make the day a memorable one.. I’m so blessed to have the most amazing man to spend the rest of my life with. The best part is it was all caught on camera, I am able to replay that special moment over and over.
