Vanessa & Luis

Luis and I first met NYE 2010. My college roommate and his childhood friend had just started dating, and we all met up that night to ring in the New Year together. We ran into each other several times during the next two years while hanging out with our mutual friends. I liked him, but it’s not my style to make the first move. ;) He says he liked me from the beginning but was waiting for me to make a move and perceived my reserved persona as stuck up. Finally, in October 2011, with some encouragement from my friend, he reached out to me through a Facebook message. After texting a few days, we had our first date.

We had been planning a San Francisco trip for a while, neither of us had been there and were excited to explore the city together. I’m a planner and wanted to map out what we were going to do each day. Luis, on the other hand, likes to “go with the flow”. I wanted to bike across the Golden Gate bridge, but Luis is deathly afraid of heights and didn’t even want to drive across the bridge, let alone walk or bike across. His solution was to find a nice spot close to the bridge where we could take pictures, I agreed. After walking around Chrissy Field, taking selfies, people watching and finding friendly strangers to take our photos I was ready to move on to explore the next spot on my list. Luis encouraged me to let go of my structured agenda and just take in the beauty around me.

As we were walking on the beach, I saw a photographer taking photos of what seemed like the bridge in the background (little did I know Luis hired him to be there). Luis walked over, handed the photographer his phone and asked him to take a picture of us. After posing for the picture, Luis got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was a great start to an unforgettable weekend an amazing future together.
