Where it all started
Yamila and Romulo met through mutual friends while on a camping trip. The pair became friends first but as time passed they realized they had an undeniable romantic connection, and although they didn’t fall in love fast, they fell hard.
One evening after a romantic dinner date, Yamila and Romulo went back to his house. When she opened the door, Yamila was stunned to see the hall decorated with candles, rose petals and photos of their journey together. The decorations led to a room filled with roses and when Yamila turned around, Romulo as down on one knee holding a gorgeous engagement ring.
