Natalie and Alex have been together for 8 years and met when they were seniors at Loyola Marymount University. The little in Natalie’s sorority had just finished study abroad in Rome with Alex when she introduced them at her birthday party Labor Day weekend. Little did they know, they had a ton in common including that Alex went to the same high school as Natalie’s brother and sister!
For their 8 year anniversary, they took 2 weeks off work to travel throughout Italy. Natalie’s 29th birthday was the second day of their trip and she thought maybe he would propose then. When he didn’t, she didn’t think much of it and figured it’d happen when they were home for the holidays with their families. Alex had told Natalie for her birthday his parent’s got a car service to take them to Tuscany for the day. One of the wineries they had planned to visit was one that was his parents had become good friends with the owners. When they arrived, the winery pulled Alex aside to “take care of the bill”. They then walked them over to this gorgeous gazebo where they had set up a private tasting for the two of them. Natalie had figured the winery was being extra nice because Alex’s parents had set it up. It wasn’t until their host said “now before we get started I think Alex wanted to say something” that she realized what was happening. In that moment she literally said “oh sh*t it’s happening!” The rest of the day was spent together exploring Tuscany – it was magical!
These two are the absolute sweetest and I cannot wait for their wedding this fall!
