This Couple is Spilling the Story Behind Their Antigua Wedding (and It’s Everything)
V: Maaaybe we’re getting a little ahead of ourselves by starting with the engagement.
A: Yeah. Let’s talk about how you fell in love with me first!
V: Ok. Easy. It was actually raining really badly, umm, like really badly and it was really dark out. I didn’t have an umbrella but you texted me that you did. Aaaand, we were meeting in Flat Iron to grab a drink. I remember seeing you on the kitty corner but I wasn’t sure if it was you or not. So I started running to you in what, I swear, felt like slow motion.
A: How romantic! Ok keeeeeep going.
V: *laughs*, there was no music, just a bunch of angry honking. Anyways, I’m running and I’m running and I’m completely soaked and I stop halfway, cup my hands around my mouth, and just yell out your name.
A: Hoooow romaaa-!
V: Wait! You didn’t come to me, you just stood there under your umbrella. At this point I said screw it, I’m drenched, and I just kept running. Right as I worked up enough courage to run up to a total stranger, you tilt your umbrella just enough for me to see your big eyes smiling at me. That’s when I knew I loved you.
A: Ohhhh booooooooy! Who wants another drink?
V: Ok, do you want to tell them about the proposal?
A: *nervous sound* Ok so… We were about to go on vacation and you told me that you wanted to treat me to a massage because of my [expletive] work week. God, remember those massages? *melts in her chair*
V: I actually fell asleep.
A: You took me to a bathhouse and they took us up to a fancy VIP area where we got massaged together. And, *laughs*, I remember thinking it was weird because you hate couples massages.
V: They’re the worst!
A: So, anyways, we’re done with the massage and you’re like “they want us to go to the next room because they have free drinks for us”. Ok! So I open the door and there are hundreds of candles and two rose petal paths. One of the paths leads to a small box and the other one leads to a bottle of Veuve. I took a B line to the champagne.
A: *that kind of laughing where she’s sort of gasping for air but hasn’t yet snorted* So you grabbed me by the shoulders and turned me to look at the box. There was a pink peony right next to the box. That’s when I realized what was happening. You then started saying things, and got down on one knee, and I was crying.
V: Noooooo. You were sobbing. Horrifically. You made me propose to you all over again because you missed the first one!
A: *snort laughing* It was perfect and I loved hearing it twice. *smooch*
And like their love story…it really was a perfect wedding
