Tell Us How You Met

Niki and I actually met for the first time through a mutual friend at Starbucks in Pooler, GA.


How Did Your Partner Propose?

(Niki is speaking in 1st person): So, Lakir took me and our friends to Biltmore Estate on 02/02/19 where we went on our first official date therefore Biltmore was very meaningful and became a special place for us. We toured the Biltmore and after tour was complete, Lakir and his friend left saying they have to run an errand. In the meantime, my friend and I went to take pictures. Shortly, after Lakir calls to say that you need to come to the car fast because our friend his not feeling well and may need to take him to urgent care. My friend and I rushed over there and noticed Lakir was waiting for us. He had a sky blue color blanket laid out in the grass with heart shaped rose petals and inside of the heart it had initials NL made of rose petals. He also had, box of chocolates, flowers, our photo-frame of our first date at Biltmore and a chalkboard that said, she said yes!!!! When I came to the spot, he hugged me and kissed me and said few meaningful things (he was also very emotional so he couldn’t complete) and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him and I said YESSSS!!!!
