Stepanie & Bryant - An Italian Engagement

"We were just starting our weeklong tour of Italy in Bellagio, a small town off Lake Como. The first morning, we decided to take a ferry to Varenna, a small picturesque town across the lake. While walking through the maze of cobblestone streets, we stumbled upon Villa Monastero, and on a whim, decided to walk through the villa. It was full of beautiful views of the lake and the botanical garden was the perfect setting for a scenic walk. As we approached the end of the gardens, there was the cutest building, which had a small balcony, looking out over Lake Como - with a backdrop of the snow-capped mountains of Switzerland. On that balcony, Bryant got down on one knee and asked me to marry him, in one of the most breathtakingly beautiful places we have visited! It felt like an absolute dream knowing I was going to (officially) be spending the rest of my life with my best friend. Engraved on my necklace are the coordinates of Varenna, so I am reminded of one of the happiest days of my life."


Anddddd cue the happy tears. From me, of course.

I cannot wait to see my sweet friend walk down the aisle to her groom.
