Laura and Arturo

How We Met

Me and Arturo met through Instagram. We went to the same event back in 2013 and he found me through the location tag. He followed me and I followed him back. After about 1 year and 1/2 of following each other and him messaging me, he asked me on our first date. We have been inseparable since and now after two official years of being together he proposed to me!!

How He Asked

Arturo and I planned a two day getaway in Palm Springs for our two year anniversary. Everything was exceptional upon our arrival and everything I expected Korakia Pensione to be. I couldn’t expect any less from my very detailed boyfriend. On 6/28/17, our official anniversary, we had an amazing breakfast followed by a spa. After the spa we went over to our suite which was decorated with rose petals everywhere, an anniversary bouquet, music playing from a record player, an amazing lunch set up with champagne and a gift. I was in awe and already in tears still not knowing of what was to come.

He hugged me and kissed me and said Happy Anniversary. He then told me to change and ‘get pretty’ so we could take pictures for memories to keep. After we had our lunch he told me to open his anniversary gift first. As I’m opening the gift I realize it’s a ring floatie and before I had time to put the pieces together he pulled out the real ring, got on his knee and asked me to marry him!!! I cried and cried and finally said yes after being happiest day of my life!!
