Noemi and Mark

How We Met

My fiancé and I met in May of 2014 while we were in college. We were both living in my hometown, Hickory (NC) and were introduced to each other by mutual friends. He asked me out on a date and we have been inseparable since then! We moved to Dallas, Texas together in 2015 and recently bought our own house together.

How He Asked

Every year, Mark and I plan a big vacation to a dream destination we’ve always wanted to visit. This year, we planned a trip to Bora Bora to celebrate our four year anniversary. On our second day there Mark told me during breakfast that he had a “fancier” dinner planned to celebrate our anniversary and that we would be taking some pictures beforehand. I thought it was so sweet and didn’t think anything weird of it because we always have a few ‘fancy’ nights when we vacation and he normally plans them himself!

We got picked up in a golf cart by the photographer right before sunset and he took us around the island for pictures. He then led us to the cutest chapel, took some pictures outside, and then told us to go inside…little did I know what I was about to walk down to!

There were rose petals scattered on the floor that led to the most beautiful private set up on the other side of the chapel. That’s when I knew…and before I could take it all in I saw Mark on one knee and my heart immediately filled with joy.

I ugly cried so bad that the photographer made Mark take my ring back off so we could do it again for “better” pictures! He could not have made this night more perfect if he had tried. I can’t wait to marry this man.
