Valentina and Jonathan
How We Met
We’ve known each other since we were 8 years old. We attend the same church and met there at a young age. It wasn’t until we were 17 that we actually became friends after spending time together at a birthday party. We had mutual friends and started spending lots of time together.
We quickly realized that we liked each other and wanted to become more than friends. Although we were young, it felt so right and we knew that we were meant to be together.
How He Asked
After about 4 years of dating, we took a trip with our families to New York City (one of our favorite places). We went with Jonathan’s family and it just so happens that his sister and brother-in-law are photographers. We went around taking pictures at a ton of different locations and got excited to take some pictures in front of the Brooklyn Bridge. We posed for a picture and it was there that Jonathan popped the question right in front of the Brooklyn Bridge.
His family was there to witness it but had no idea that any friends or my family would be there too. It wasn’t until they came out from behind the carousel that I realized that all the people we loved most were able to be a part of this special moment. It was the best surprise I’ve ever received and we can’t wait to get married in just a few months!
