Olivia and Antonio
How We Met
I have always been a hopeless romantic. I remember being six years old dreaming about my future husband and how we would meet. I grew up with the same hopes for finding my “soul mate” and was very picky. At 21 years old I had never had a boyfriend, I was independent and still dreaming of the day we would meet. That summer I got my first job and was in orientation when I saw him. A successful, handsome, 31 year old pharmacy technician. We were getting a tour in orientation when I looked in the small window on the door and saw him. My first thought was “I could marry that guy someday and I don’t even know it yet”. A couple of months into the job I only had rare glances of him, then I heard the news that he was going to be my new boss. The first time I ever heard his voice, I was immediately drawn in. I remember wanting him to come talk to my customers just so I could hear the most sensual voice I have ever heard. I told him that I was into camping and hiking, and he randomly asked if I wanted to go to Havasupai Falls with him.
I didn’t know what that meant but decided to go even though I hardly knew him. On the hike down we talked non stop and it felt like I had known him for years. We stopped by “Mooney Falls” and he told me that this fall had a lot of meaning to him because it gives you a feeling in your soul when you are under it. We went up to it and he said “do you feel that?” I looked in his eyes and he looked in mine, and that was the moment our souls intertwined and we fell in love. The day after we got home we became official and we have been inseparable ever since.
How He Asked
Antonio gave me a beautiful gold bar necklace 2 years later with the coordinates of Mooney Falls to cherish that moment forever.
We had the opportunity to visit the place where we fell in love again and on October 29th, 2016 Antonio took my hand, led me to the Falls, got down on one knee with the most beautiful ring I have ever seen and asked me to be his forever. I have never met anyone so caring, passionate, romantic and utterly perfect. He’s the reason I sing in the shower and wake up with a smile on my face. I cannot wait to be his wife ❤
