Niek and Luis Vargas

Marriage Proposal Ideas in Roger Williams Japanese Garden

How We Met

I met Luis in Highschool. We were both Freshman. He has always told me he had a crush on me the very first day he laid his eyes on me. I wasn’t interested at first. But it was in our friendship when I began to grow feelings for him also. He asked me out on a date and soon after asked me to be his girlfriend. Of course I said yes, best decision EVER!

How He Asked

It was our anniversary and decided to go out for dinner at Hemensway and catch a movie after. We finished our meal early so he suggested we go check out a light show they were having at Roger Williams Park. I was a bit suspicious. But didn’t think too much into it. Once we got to the gardens there was a light trail we followed. Once I heard the live music I immediately began to cry. There in the middle of the garden was a dance floor with a bunch of lights surrounding it. He invited me to dance. We swayed until he got down on one knee and popped the question. I said YES! Our friends and family then popped out. It was literally a dream. I can’t stop smiling and randomly dancing!
