Madison and David
How We Met
David’s mom was my college professor. As early as one of the first days of class she had always joked about how perfect her son and I would be together. About a year later we finally met. She was certainly right, we were perfect together! We were inseparable from the day we met. Although our relationship became long distance (he is in the army) we had the most phone traveling and exploring many new places together!
How He Asked
It had been five months that we were apart. David was stationed in Italy and I was in my last semester of school. Upon graduation, I flew to Italy to visit him. One of the weekends he had planned a trip to Venice. The first day was spent sightseeing.
He told me that he had booked a sunrise gondola ride for us for the following morning. Early in the morning as we were waiting to meet the “gondola driver” he got down on a knee.
He had a photographer there to capture our special moment and had booked her to do our engagement photos all over Venice. We ended up finishing with that gondola ride he had told me about.
