Laghi di Fusine is a hidden gem of Italy, in the Dolomites mountains. Leo & Ber chosen this place, because they love to walk there together. And This place is truly amazing!

Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?

We met through mutual friends. She had a New Year’s Eve party at her house and my wedding witness extended the invitation to me.

 

What makes your relationship special? Tell us some things that you both value in your time together. What makes your relationship unique?

We have always pushed each other to achieve our goals, I believe without Leo I would not have been able to achieve most of my goals. Other than that, there is nothing we love more than being together to enjoy good wine, wherever we are.

 

How did you know your partner was the one? When did you first know this in your relationship?

I think I’ve always known this from the first moment. Leo is a good man, you can see it from his eyes.

 

Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?

One of our first trips was Iceland and we fell in love with it so much that we promised to return sooner or later. On the occasion of my graduation, Leo gave me a second trip, this time in winter. We had taken a small cottage in the south of the island, the ideal place to wait for the northern lights that we had long hoped to see. Luck wanted it to appear and so, I received my proposal under the immense green and purple sky.

 

We’re all about the bling… Tell us all about that ring!

I took the ring in to my favorite jeweler, the same one where we wanted to make the wedding rings… to do it without my noticing, he had to conspire with the jeweler because in that period I often hung out there to go and browse! hehehe!! But it doesn’t seem so compelling.

 

Are you excited to start planning your wedding day? Do you have any ideas in mind yet?

I still don’t have a clear idea, I had never fantasized about marriage before. I only know that we both want an intimate ceremony, to celebrate love with our closest friends.
