Andreas and Eleni's Paris Proposal at the Eiffel Tower

How We Met: The story about how Eleni and I met is something out of the ordinary. I came across Eleni on Facebook. Facebook had suggested to add her as a friend because we had mutual friends. As soon as I clicked on her profile and saw her… it was love at first sight.

So I added Eleni and waited nervously for the notification to say that she had accepted my request. Once she accepted, I received a message in my inbox from Eleni saying ‘Hi. I recognize you, have we met before?’ And from then we went back and forth all day messaging each other. We eventually exchanged numbers and Eleni had agreed to meet me for a drink, ever since that day we’ve been inseparable :) What I love most about Eleni is how she has the ability to make me smile and laugh no matter what mood I may be in. Our favourite things as a couple are going to the gym and training together, watching movies and spending time with our families.

How He Asked: When it came time to propose I chose Paris since it’s the capital of romance and a beautiful city. Flytographer Gonçalo Silva and Shoot Concierge Jen, helped me plan a romantic surprise proposal in near the Eiffel Tower. First, we all decided that Pont de Bir-Hakeim was the perfect spot to “pop the question”. I received a map outlining where to stand for the best light, angle, and backdrop, the iconic Eiffel Tower! Gonçalo arrived early and took position behind the lens. I asked the question, and Eleni said “Yes”.
