Real Wedding Part 1
An Austrian Affair
Tell us your love story!
We met on OK Cupid. Konrad says he sent me a message first, but I think I really did. He saw my profile picture with my yellow lab “Toby” and had to send me a message. Konrad was living in LA and I was living in San Diego. We had several phone dates before we met in person in La Jolla.
What about the proposal?
Konrad and I planned a trip to Santa Barbara to have breakfast with some friends that were visiting and to make a weekend out of it. We met them for breakfast at the Four Seasons and went for an afternoon hike like we usually do when we were in town. When we stopped for lunch at the top of the mountain, Konrad took off his backpack and got on one knee and proposed to me. At first I didn’t believe him, I may have interrupted a couple of times, and then thought this was just something humorous and spontaneous. Then he pulled out two “Happy Camper” enamel mugs a small bottle of champagne and I knew he was serious and had put some real thought into this. I said “Yes” and was speechless for a change. It didn’t hit me until our way down what had happened. Little did I know that this was the plan all along. He had asked my parents 2 weeks before when we went to visit them. He had also planned for a beautiful rose flower assortment, champagne and dinner back at the hotel. To say I was surprised is an understatement.
When did you know that you were meant to be with each other?
I feel like from the start. It was never difficult or complicated. From day one it has been easy, fun and full of love. We both have a sincere love of our family and friends and have an adventurous spirit that compliments one another. The love that both of our families and friends have for each of us makes us even happier.
