Katia and Joaquin

How We Met

My fiancée and I are Mexican. We met at a club 3 years ago. It is unbelievable to meet your future husband like that! We turned out to be neighbors.

How He Asked

Once, we discussed where are our favorite places to visit and we both decided Rome was our favorite place to be. I am a law student and most law comes from Rome so I decided to enroll in a summer school program and my grandma hopped on to visit a lot of cities in Italy. Rome was our last stop. Unfortunately, my grandma got sick on the trip and ended up hospitalized in intensive care. However, what I did not expect was that one day my boyfriend had arranged for me a lunch with an Italian friend of his to have a friend in Rome, turning out the surprise to be him in the most beautiful rooftop in Rome with the best view.

He suddenly kneeled down and asked me to marry him, unfortunately, ten minutes later I received a call from the hospital and we had to run for my grandma.

There is no other way to show me his great love than proposing and accompanying me in this moment of my life. You are the best thing that has ever happened to me!
