Marinela and Luseljan
How We Met
We met in high school, we were in the same class and soon we became best friends. Later on, he started to have other feelings for me and so one day he told me he likes a girl but refuses to say her name to me. I got mad because I was his best friend and he hadn’t told me anything about her. I began questioning him and insisting to know her name, we were in the biology class and on the biology book he wrote a name.This took me by absolute surprise because I never thought it could happen, the name he wrote was my name. Since that time, when we were 17 years old till now 10 years later, we have always been together.
How He Asked
It was our 10th anniversary on April 12 but we didn’t plan anything because one of our friends had organized a dinner for his newborn son and we couldn’t miss going. The dinner, as Luseljan told me was at a restaurant near the beach. We got there and before we went out of the car he told me to close my eyes. At that moment I thought he had organized a surprise for our anniversary, so I start walking with my eyes tied holding Luseljan’s hand.
When we stopped I opened my eyes and the first thing I saw were the words “WILL YOU MARRY ME?” I was standing in the middle of a heart made of candles and filled with rose petals on the beach at the sunset and the song -Perfect of Ed Sheeran playing in the background.
He got on one knee and asked me to marry him. We were surrounded by our friends and family who were the “partners in crime” that helped Luseljan to set up this surprise. After the sunset, we light up a heart-shaped lantern and the evening continued with the barbecue and music and dancing and laughing around the fire.
