Our Love Stories

4.17.2015

Picture your dream vacation: the sun, the sand, and a chance encounter with your future beloved – it sounds like a fairy-tale, but that sums up Samuel and Ariel’s serendipitous encounter while on her vacation to Sabah. Samuel was once a certified Advanced Diver, took Ariel to wonder the underwater world – where they first locked eyes under the sea. Discovering they were part of the same interests and profession, the pair finally connected after 5 years of friendship. Four years on, they planned their nuptials around the picturesque fairy-tale setting in which they ignited. They selected Melbourne where they first met, for matrimony ceremony; the luxury ocean-side resorts for their receptions to honor that sunny, warm day on the beach: a view of the sea, the saltwater smell in the air, and love encircling the duo as they joined together.

The Proposal

4.12.2018

It all happened when Samuel tricked Ariel into thinking they were going to take sunset shots in front of Disney castle—she had been complaining about him disappearing in crowd. But Samuel actually snuck in his ring into his Mickey's Magic Hat. As soon as the camera started snapping, he was on one knee and popped the question. "Samuel was so nervous, he accidentally dropped his Magic Hat and jammed the engagement ring on the wrong finger!" Ariel explains. She said, "yes," of course, and asked shortly after whether or not there was more magic from the hat!
