Matai surprised Julia with a true fairytale proposal on an exclusive Parisian rooftop overlooking the Champs-Elysées. He decorated the proposal setting with 18 candles and a beautiful floral design. Matai also arranged for a Champagne table complete with delicious chocolates. Once they entered the rooftop, Matai took his time before dropping to his knee to pop the question. It was beyond emotional and Julia's reaction was priceless. After the proposal, we headed to Trocadero for a few photos with the sparkling Eiffel Tower as our backdrop. Next day, we kicked off our 2-hour evening session on Alexander III Bridge and concluded at the Louvre during the romantic Blue Hour.
Mother Nature works in mysterious ways ...
Julia and I first met in 2014 at a friend’s house-warming party. We hit it off quickly and started dating. However, at the time, Julia was still in college and I had just started a new job in a different city ... and so things didn't quite end up working out.
Over the following years, we occasionally bumped into each other at parties, but it wasn’t until late 2017 when Mother Nature brought us together for good—let me explain:
Hurricane Harvey hit Houston (which was home for me) with catastrophic rainfall and flooding, forcing me to evacuate to nearby College Station, where Julia resided.
I was only in College Station for a single day, and decided to attend a lecture at the local university … and just so happened to run into Julia in the parking lot … and the rest is history …
