Proposed to in Venice, Italy.

Recommended Posts

Dustin is in the military and was on tour in Afghanistan last year. It was very hard for me while he was gone, to say the least. In May 2007, we met up in Europe for 4 wonderful weeks during his leave from tour. We went on a tour of Europe and it was the most amazing trip ever!! We went through most of Western Europe. He knew though that I was looking most forward to Venice and it was one of the last cities we were going to see together.

 

It was very dissapointing because the day we were in Venice, it flooded! The city was pretty much shut down because of all the heavy rain! That didn't stop us though, we bought these cheap green ponchos and decided to wander the city. It was basically a ghost town!

 

We were down by the canals and the sun was beggining to set. It was bitter sweet for me, because it was a such a beautiful city and we were having such an amazing time; however, it was one of our last days together before he had to go back to Afghanistan. It was so beautiful to seeing the rain hit the water while the sun was setting, it was like a dream! It was like we were the only ones in the whole city. I remember asking Dustin if he thought this could get any better...and at that moment he got down on one knee he told me that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me!!

 

I was in shock and just began to cry...and I couldn't stop. It was the most amazing moment and feeling in my life! cheer2.gif

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
