New Jersey Bride Maria and Julian Engagement Story “I knew we would be vacationing in Bermuda for a couple of weeks, as we do every summer and knew it would be the perfect place for my proposal. One of my best friends, Steven, a native Bermudian, runs one of Bermudas most successful event companies, Exclusive Events, he has a lot of knowledge and experience in this area, so I immediately wanted to consult with him about where it would be best to propose. We bounced ideas off one another and concluded I would propose at Cambridge Beaches, the only 5 diamond resort in Bermuda, at one of their restaurants, Breezes. I began emailing Nadia, the events and operations manager, to start the planning process, she was extremely helpful and more then accommodating. New Jersey Bride Maria and Julian Engagement Story New Jersey Bride Maria and Julian Engagement Story Before I knew it, the day had arrived to propose to my love. I had planned a dinner for four on the beach, to make it look very inconspicuous. Which would later would become a table for two once I proposed. Our table was right next to the ocean. I mapped it out to propose to her right as we had gotten to our seats with friends trailing far behind. New Jersey Bride Maria and Julian Engagement Story There was a band playing soft music, as they had been made aware of what I was about to do. I walked down the beach, with Maria in front of me. Just as we got to our table and about to sit down, I got down on one knee and looked into Marias eyes, and asked her to spend the rest of her life with me. All the while, the photographer I had hired was off in the distance taking pictures to capture our moment. She and I cried tears of joy when she said yes, and she couldn’t believe what was happening. Dinner couldn’t have been more special, with the sun setting on the oceans horizon. ”
