Mikaela and Chris

How We Met

We met September 19, 2015 through mutual friends one night out. We all went out to a bar in Astoria, Queens and hit it off within minutes. After that night I went home to my friends and verbatim said “I think I just met my future husband”. And literally since that night it’s been history!

How He Asked

On march 23, 2017 my boyfriend planned the most fairy-tale proposal and I just have to share it with the world. We were enjoying a vacation traveling through Thailand and for the end of the trip we planned to go to Koh Phi Phi Island. When we arrived by speed boat to the island I was first surprised with a private hillside villa with an infinity pool overlooking the water. Then he had planned a private long tale boat ride to bamboo island which is voted in the top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world to snorkel in the coral reef and have a private lunch with a bottle of champagne on the beach to then watch the sunset on the boat. To think that wasn’t enough, he told me he booked a private candle lit dinner on the beach.

After getting ready and finally getting to the lobby Chris stalled a little and we got a glass of champagne. Once the table was ready he grabbed my hand and said, “We’re ready!” Walking over to our table on the beach I see a crowd of people staring at us and in the direction of our table. Camera lights start flashing and all of a sudden life size words of “MARRY ME?” Go up in flames! Next thing I know, he is down on one knee asking me to spend the rest of my life with him. And obviously- I SAID YES! I couldn’t keep this proposal to myself because it was too good to be true. Perfect was an understatement. Can’t wait to start my forever with my best friend!!!
