Melanie and Amir
How We Met
My fiance, Amir, and I met in his living-room. His mom was using his house to host a big birthday party for his younger sister, and one of my bestfriend’s mom was friends with his mom. So my bestfriend invited me to go with them to the party because it was very close to my house. At first when we saw each other at the party, Amir was shy and didn’t try to talk to me, but with the help of his oldest sister, she brought us together and started the conversation, and we spent the rest of the night talking. And the rest is history.
How He Asked
Amir is a tennis coach for professional players and was going to the French Open with one of his players. Since he knows that I can’t pass up an opportunity to go to Paris, he invited me to join them. During the week, Amir and his player were busy working, but that Friday he told me that we were going to a tennis party. We got all dressed up for the party and went to the Tuileries Garden. It turned out that there was no party, he just said that to get me to dress up without being suspicious. Instead, he got down on one knee and proposed.
And he hired the talented Jacqui Cole to take pictures of the proposal. After he proposed, we went around the beautiful city with Jacqui and she took some gorgeous pictures that we can treasure forever.
