the romantic proposal
We fell in love with how adorable the couple was together. Ronnie is a true romantic. Here’s their proposal story!
On April 8, 2011, Ronnie took Kristine to her favorite sushi restaurant, Sugarfish by Sushi Nozawa in Brentwood. While having a lovely meal, Kristine admitted to Ronnie that she had a rough week at work and Ronnie assured her that things would improve. After dinner and a quick stop at Bevmo, Kristine and Ronnie returned home for a quiet and relaxing night at home. As Ronnie made his way to the closet to change, he asked Kristine to look through his work bag for a “new book” he just bought. In the work bag, Kristine pulls out a photo book which Ronnie had constructed. It contained photos and descriptions of their adventures together. Thinking that this was an early anniversary gift, Kristine slowly went through each and every page. She was moved by the photos and captions until she reached the very last page. There she found a passage which Ronnie wrote to her.
As she slowly read through the passage she got to the very end, which read “Will you continue this journey together with Your First Name and My Surname?” which were lyrics taken from one of Kristine’s favorite songs “Your First Name and My Surname” by Jacky Cheung, a famous Hong Kong singer.
When she finished reading it, Ronnie got down on one knee and the rest was history. True to his words, Kristine’s week got much better very quickly!
