Miranda and Alberto
How We Met
Alberto and I met when we were just 19 and 20 years old in college. I guess you can say it was a Modern romance as we first connected through Facebook in a “like my post and I’ll rate you” type of thing. We hit it off immediately and have been together for 6 1/2 years now. We were so young but our passion for working hard and succeeding helped us to grow together. He is truly was and is my bestfriend.
How He Asked
I am a control freak when it comes to planning our trips, so when Alberto said he was planning a nice dinner for one night in Santorini I immediately asked what restaurant and what do I need to wear. He played it off so smooth even with the million and one questions. Fast forward to the day of, Alberto had disappeared and left me in the lobby of the hotel/restaurant. For some reason, I started to get butterflies as the woman told me to follow her through the caved doorways, but then I saw flower petals on the ground and wondered who they were for. She proceeded to walk me to the staircase and I slowly made my way down trying to keep it cool, but that’s when I saw him, standing there (handsome as ever-I may add) in this beautiful scenic spot. Me, being the awkward person I am, tried to make a joke that he wasn’t there to walk me down the stairs in these heels, he sheepishly laughed and said “it’s cause I was right here baby”. Then I lost it, I cried the entire time, even as I told myself that there is a photographer and to play it cool and just smile. I could not hold back the tears of joy, as I knew without a doubt that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with this man. We spent the rest of the night eating dinner and just talking about our future, our goals, and the wedding. I cannot wait to marry this man and have the wedding of our dreams.
