Katrina and John
How We Met
I was getting out of a long term relationship and my best friend decided to take me out to the clubs to get rid of all that negative energy. John caught my eye when he was first spotted photo-bombing most my photos. It wasn’t until we met at the clubs again with our mutual friends that we began talking. However it wasn’t smooth sailing. My friends didn’t like him and even called for an emergency girls meeting to talk me out of dating him. You know the saying, “if you tell me I can’t have something then that just makes me want it more”. With that said, we starting talking and going on dates more frequently and before I knew it, I was head over heels and the rest was history.
How He Asked
We were on our 6 weeks European Holiday celebrating 2 years of being together. We would be in Paris for our final leg of the trip so I thought maybe, just maybe, it would happen then. But, I did not see this coming..he proposed in Venice whilst on the gondola at the beginning of our trip..
I was too busy being a tourist and taking photos of my surroundings that it took me a few minutes to register what was happening. He got down on one knee (whilst balancing himself on the gondola), pulled out a ring and popped the question.
We spent the rest of the evening sipping on champagne with strawberry, listing to the amazing music with locals randomly dancing on the streets at Caffe Florian in St Marks Square. It was super romantic.
On the 4th June 2011, “I SAID YES!”.
5 years and 2 kids later we will finally be getting Married on our 7 year anniversary on June 27th 2016 in Santorini Greece.
