Sabrina and Isaac

How We Met

We met on Match.com. He didn’t meet any of my criteria but he was funny and really handsome so I agreed to a sushi dinner date. We couldn’t have clicked any better than that. On our third date, we did a full day of events starting with skiing and snowboarding, our first kiss, and a movie. Dates became more and more exciting with a snow backpacking trip on our fifth date. We just couldn’t get enough of each other.

How He Asked

We went to Lima, Peru for a friend’s wedding. Once the wedding was over, we decided to fly out to Cusco to go hike the Inca Trail and visit Machu Picchu. The Inca Trial hike was a 4 days/3 night backpacking trip with absolutely zero showers and no makeup. On the last day of the Inca Trail, after waking up at 4 am, we walk through the Sun Gate shortly after sunrise to come to our first glimpse of Machu Picchu. That’s when we decided to hike to the top of the stairs to get a better view. Once up there, he decides to call up a guide to come and take a picture of us.

I tell him that it’s unnecessary and that we can just take a selfie, no need for the guide to climb up just for a picture. As the guide comes up, other tourists are starting to come up to and Isaac tells them to wait where they are before coming up. At this point, I’m telling Isaac to hurry up for the picture.

He turns me around and slowly starts kissing me and telling me sweet words. I keep on trying to take a picture so everyone else can come up. This is when he decides to get down on one knee and I finally realized what is happening. The rest is history. I said YES.
