SAY HELLO AND CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR SYLVIE BRIDE & GROOM: Valerie & Alejandro
HOW THEY MET
Alejandro and I have pretty much always known each other from Church but never really spoke to each other until 3 years ago when I asked for his help with tutoring (I’m not good at math and he’s a genius at it). From there on we built a really nice friendship (even though he was always interested ?). We always served at Church together which caused us to like each even other more. Then on April 3rd, 2019 he asked me to be his girlfriend. We decided to leave this decision on hold for a little while because we were going on a mission trip and they don’t let people who are dating go together. A month after we came back from our mission trip, we went out to the beach after eating at our favorite spot and that’s when he asked me out for the second time and I said yes. Then, a year later, on November 24th, 2020, he proposed. Our relationship has always felt right ever since we were just friends! It’s so easy to be with each other and have a great time when we’re together. It’s such an indescribable feeling but we both know this was truly God’s plan.
HOW DID YOU KNOW THEY WERE THE ONE?
Even before we started dating, Alejandro had already checked off every single quality on my list. The fact that he’s so attentive, loving, and understanding towards me even when we were just friends was something so important for me. Also, the fact that we communicate so well is such a great quality in our relationship. another very important factor for me was our religion. We are both Christian and we both have the same morals and beliefs when it comes to marriage and a family. So for short, there was never a specific moment where I knew we were meant to be, our relationship and just the person he is, and what he brings out in me is how I know we’re meant to be together forever.
HOW DID HE PROPOSE?
The week before Alejandro proposed he told me he had bought us a ticket to this really nice garden for us to go check out and take nice pictures. I was all for it since we always have little outings like that every once in a while. Then Nov. 24th came and we went out to the garden which was beautiful! He told me he had seen this specific place in pics and wanted to go check it out. We headed towards it and when we were there that’s when he started saying everything and I knew it was serious because he started getting teary-eyed! After I said yes I saw my friend coming out from out of the bushes with the camera taking pictures. It was amazing!
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE A SYLVIE RING?
My fiance was the one who picked it out and he says that the design Sylvie collection offers is superior to anything else he had seen at any other store. He did know my style and what I like in jewelry so that helped him. In reality, I like how everything was a surprise and how it was he who took his time to customize the ring that he knew best suited me.
WHICH SYLVIE RING DID YOU CHOOSE?
We Chose the Lea Split Shank Engagement Ring with a princess cut center.
WHERE DID YOU BUY THE RING?
We bought our ring at H. L. Gross in Garden City.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR RING?
The best part about my ring is the fact that my fiancé got to customize the ring himself. I love the overall quality and how nice it looks on my hand. The princess cut gives the ring a petite, girly, and classy look that makes it perfect! I never knew I would like it so much! The halo around the diamond is exactly how I envisioned my engagement ring and the split shank is absolutely gorgeous!
AS THE GROOM, WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR SYLVIE BRIDE?
I love the way she can take any situation and turn it into something great. The way she smiles is a constant reminder to me of the first thing that made me fall in love with her. She’s an amazing friend and an even better companion. I love you Valerie!
