Claudia had been anticipating the moment she would get proposed to ever since she was a little girl, but nothing could have prepared her for when it would actually happen. Even though she had spoken about marriage with Michael before, she was still caught completely off-guard when she found him down on one knee.
“On the first day of our little getaway, Michael had sneakily made plans with the hotel for an elaborate proposal. When I walked into our room, it was all dark except for the candles on the floor. I thought it was somebody else’s room, but when I turned around to walk out I saw Michael and knew it was actually happening. It was a very surreal moment!”
For their wedding, the couple made sure to showcase their personalities as much as possible. With an abundance of greenery, personalised macaroon favours and a unique last-minute bridal party entrance that ended with an impromptu dance to ‘Crazy in Love’, everything tied together to create a magical night filled with family and friends.
Although Claudia is usually quite nervous, she was surprised to find herself incredibly calm during her wedding.
“There were too many variables for me to worry about, but when it came down to it, it just felt so natural. There’s nothing like seeing my soon-to-be husband waiting for me. It’s incredible having 200 pairs of eyes on you, but the one pair that you care so much about makes the other 199 disappear.”
Congratulations to Claudia and Michael!
