Maria and Kevin
How We Met
We both lived in the small beachside community of Long Beach on Long Island and eventually met through mutual friends on the beach. Our love for the beach, the outdoors, and adventure brought us together and eventually brought us to Italy.
How He Asked
Being Italian-American, I surprised him with with a trip to Italy and he gave me the biggest surprise of my life! At a place called Pietra Grande, the big rock, he proposed on a small pedal boat. I thought we were posing for a photo in front of the rocks but out of the corner of my eye I noticed him bending down. I turned to see what he was doing and it wasn’t until I saw a stunning ring in front of me that I understood what was happening. I was completely shocked. In front of pietra grande, he gave me the pietra grande.
