Juliana and Santiago met in Cartagena, Colombia during a family vacation. When they first met, they both immediately knew it was love at first sight. Then, from the moment they shared their first kiss, they knew we were meant to be for a lifetime. A week after the couple returned from vacation to Medellin, Colombia, Santiago visited Juliana at home and asked her to be his girlfriend and she, of course, said “Yes!” Juliana happily stated “our love completes us both in so many levels. We have achieved many goals and all we set our hearts to do always works out magnificent!”

After a year of dating, Juliana had to move to Miami, FL for business reasons, and without any hesitation, Santiago offered to make the move with her. Three years later, Santiago planned the most romantic, beautiful and organized proposal. Juliana states “On our four year anniversary, we were celebrating and went to our favorite park. There he surprised me with a fully decorated table with red roses, champagne, candles, AND a beautiful sailboat.”

Santiago also had managed to have food from  their favorite restaurant. The music playing in the background was the song from when  they first met. The final touch was a beautifully decorated album with their photographs put in chronological order from when they first met. On the last page of the album, Juliana found the proposal note, where he wrote; he wants to sail away in a lifetime journey with her. Then, he asked her to reach to the sailboat on the table, and there was the engagement ring, which was followed by, “I want to continue living the rest of my days with you.” Juliana instantly began to cry from the excitement, and of course, she said she would love to spend the rest of her life with him.
