"Jay,

Above all, I thank you for loving me.

To be loved by you is the greatest feeling anyone can ever experience and I get to experience that every day of my life, for the rest of my life and I vow to love you, the way you so profoundly love me.


You are the most special thing to me and you are the most special thing in my life."

from carmen to jayjay

the proposal story

I came home from work to Jay waiting at the door. He was suited up as he usually does for work, but he was in one of his special suits. He asked me to come with him to the balcony and led me by the hand.

Once we got there, I was nearly in tears at how beautiful it was - truly a romantic and private oasis.

It turns out Jay secretly took the day off work to clean and redecorate our balcony. There was new patio furniture, strung fairy lights, candles... everything! Not to mention, the table was also set up with a bottle of Dom Pérignon, tons of oysters, tins of caviar and homemade blinis. There was also the largest and most luscious bouquet of flowers I've ever seen. Initially, I thought it was to celebrate another event in our lives. However, he then got down on one knee, made a heartwarming speech and asked me to marry him.

It was perfect, just the two of us at the intimacy of our own home. I couldn't have imagined it any other way.

"To my wife on my wedding day, thank you for being there for me. You have no idea what you mean to me, maybe because I am not very good with words, like you are.

You've made me the man you see here today and because of you I know the man I want to become, you are the light that gives me strength when times are dark. You are the love of my life and I will love you forever."

"Carmen,

When I first set my eyes on you, I fell in love
I see these vows I make today, not only as promises, but as a privilege.

I’m privileged to love and support you as the woman you are today, the wife you will be tomorrow, and the person you hope to become."
