Veronica and Richard
How We Met
My fiancé and I met on the first day of high school. We both ended up in the same art class and always looked at each other, but never said a word. One day, he offered to give me a ride home from school and after that, we instantly hit it off and became friends. We started hanging out with mutual friends, but it wasn’t until we started college that he finally asked me to be his girlfriend. Being that we were friends for so many years, we had the perfect foundation before we started dating. Love is truly friendship on fire and I can’t imagine a relationship where I couldn’t be my goofy self, share everything, and go through life’s journey with the most positive energy.
How He Asked
In August 2017, My fiancé and I wanted to celebrate our 25th birthdays by sailing the Mediterranean on a two week cruise. Little did I know, we would be celebrating something even more special. A week into our cruise, we spent the day in Santorini, Greece. My fiancé had booked an excursion to go kayaking above volcanoes at Red Beach and we spent hours enjoying the beautiful scenery, swimming, and indulging in a delicious Greek meal. There was a photographer there to capture our moments kayaking and swimming together, we got the cutest shots! To my unexpected surprise, we would go on another excursion and tour the beautiful villages of Oia! Just when I thought I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the village, my best friend and the love of my life got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife! It the the absolute best day of my life and we are now planning our dream destination wedding!
