Olga and Roma
How We Met
“A Slice of Happiness”
With summer in full swing, it’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy the beauty and fun that abounds on the Northern California coastline. One of my favorite memories of Roma and I was when we first met at a local food festival in Santa Cruz, California. I was sampling some delicious pies at the Beckmann’s stand when our eyes met as we both ate free samples. I could feel myself blush, but he bravely approached and asked me what my favorite flavor was (its Strawberry Rhubarb of course!). After touring the festival together, we went on a walk along the ocean as the sunset on a gorgeous day in Santa Cruz. I felt instantly connected to him and had never fallen so deeply in love. In my heart, I knew he was the man with whom I would spend the rest of my life.
How He Asked
In only three years my dreams came true – Roma reached out to Fire & Brilliance in San Jose, CA to design the perfect ring. He didn’t know anything about jewelry, so they helped him create a halo diamond ring with a moissanite Asscher center stone – absolutely breathtaking! What’s more, he reached out to Amber from DeJoy Photography to be there for the proposal. Roma and I met Amber on a hike a few years ago and immediately became friends, so I never suspected a thing when she arrived to go on a hike. When he got on one knee, my heart burst with joy – I couldn’t believe what was happening. What’s more- at the end of the session, Roma asked me to close my eyes to give me one more gift. I couldn’t believe he remembered – a pie! We always joked that I’d love to smash one in his face, and he let me do it on camera. It was the most fun day of my life, and I can’t wait to get married to the love of my life and best friend.
