Matteo and Stefania

Engagement Proposal Ideas in The Amalfi Coast

How We Met

Believe it or not Stefania and I are a tinder/social media SUCCESS STORY. After scrolling through on almost every dating site out there I landed upon Stefania’s photo and immediately knew I needed to meet her. Noticing we have a few friend in common I did some detective work and found out who we both knew and found her Instagram. I made sure a good friend of both of us put in a good word before I asked her out. Jaclyn immediately said we would be perfect for each other and that I’d love her family… LOL. Messaged her saying Hey whats up? And the conversation never ended. We went on our first date at Fortina (Rye Brooke, NY) where Christian one of the owners did Chef’s Table for us, delivered each dish to the table explained what we were eating and we couldn’t have had a better time. Thanks Christian ;)

How He Asked

There’s no better of a place to think of then the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Beautiful views, amazing food and love is certainly in the air. Growing up the family and I would go back to my father’s home town every summer to vacation and Italy became a part of our lives. After 2 years of dating the girl of my dreams I decided it was time to pop the big question. The family vacation was already booked and now it was time to check out some stones! I took Stefania on a little trip up to the town of Ravello where not only is a long drive involved a long walk is involved as well to get to Villa Cimbrone. An incredible Villa filled with history and il Terrazzo Dell’infinito ‘The Terrace of Infinity’ We walked along a gorgeous garden to get to the very edge of the property and see the view from the terrace.

After hanging for a couple minute I had my friend and sister taking photos and get the drone up in the air and it was GAMETIME. Looking back Stefania said she had no idea until I said “Do you know why I brought you here?” Couldn’t have worked out better! After bringing Stefania to the most beautiful place in the world over looking the entire Amalfi Coast I dropped to my knee and asked her to marry me. Immediately she shook her head and said yes. ( Proof is in the Video :D ).
