Meet Melissa and Enrique:
Melissa, being the awesome bride she is, gave us the scoop on how they met, how he asked, and all of the wedding details from her and Enrique's special day! Here we go!
SF: How did you meet?
M: "We met in high school and have been dating ever since we were seniors! High school sweethearts!!
SF: Tell us about the proposal!"
M: "We were on a NYC dinner cruise because we had never been on one before. It was such a beautiful summer night and we went up to the top deck to watch the sunset and see the city skyline. As I was waking up the steps, I looked around and saw many couples sitting along the sides of the cruise ship watching the sunset. It really was so pretty and I remember saying out loud, "Wow, someone is going to get engaged tonight. It's the perfect setting to get engaged." To this day, I still cannot believe what I blurted out. Enrique was behind me and asked what I had just said, so I repeated it to him and we continued to walk to get a seat.
Within minutes, someone who worked on the ship asked if I was Melissa. I said yes and he handed me roses and said they were for me. I thanked him and then thanked Enrique for getting me them. I thought it was so cute of him and thought it was something the cruise ship offered if you wanted to purchase. Little did I know that the BIGGEST surprise of my life was coming. The rest was honestly such a blur. Minutes ago, I had said that someone was going to get engaged, then I had flowers in my hands and the next thing I knew, the same man who gave me the flowers handed me a card which said, "Melissa, will you marry me?" I looked up and there was Enrique, down on one knee with a ring. I still cannot believe that night and how I had absolutely no idea what was going to happen. I never thought that I was going to be the one engaged that night! It was beyond amazing and after 9 years, I was engaged to the only boyfriend I ever had, my first and only love!"
