Their love story:
How He Proposed 
from the bride, Mariana

He asked if I wanted to go on a boat ride. We were on vacation in
Thailand in December 2013. The sensation of feeling the motion of the
waves and the smell of the sea could only entice me to fully accept with
a delightful pleasurable “Yes”. Walking on the traditional wooden long tail boat, rustic with chipped
paint and a mound of ropes tangled up in the bow, I was thrilled, more
so than him. Knowing his taste, he would have preferred a yacht. For me
this was my yacht of choice. The three of us, including our captain sat
in silence as the images of the mountains filled our eyes with colors of
green and the sky of blue. He asked, “Do you like it?” How could I not, alone in the sea
with the omission of frivolous disturbances, just him next to me. A
stop, on an island with an old shipwreck washed on land. Climbing out,
walking on the sand, distancing ourselves more and more from our boat
and captain, heading towards the old wreck. A hermit crab bypassed us,
as he looked at us with delight. Abba returned the glance. Eagerly looking through the wreck, he pointed to a small green box. He
asked for me to open it, and at his request I did, imagining at once the
thought process and maneuvering that he had had to assume to make all
of this possible. He placed one knee on the sand and asked, “Will you be my wife?”He had become my husband long before then, … now I just verbalized it with a “Yes”.The couple’s families met officially in February 2014 at JW Marriott, Marquis in Dubai, where they gave their blessings for the marriage.
