Remember how the hotel upgraded us to a suite? well they didn’t really upgrade us. But I’ll start from the beginning. After getting the room upgrade, Robert and I got ready for dinner and a show we had that night. it was still only around 6 so Robert told me that we should walk around before going to the show. Once we got to the lobby of the hotel, Robert was told that the car was ready… I was so confused. He said he had booked us a dinner reservation before the show we had (even though the show was going to serve us dinner) I started freaking out! My hands were sweating non stop and I thought I was going to have a heart attack. (the tiny roads going up the mountain didn’t help) and about 30 minutes later we arrived to the top of a mountain where all there was a giant blue dome church, the ones that I had seen a million times on Instagram and dreamed of getting to see in real life someday.
He told me we were going to watch the sunset and I believed him until I walked closer to the church and saw a picnic complete with champagne and a rose. I started freaking out even more! I joked about the rose by the champagne being the final rose (we watch the bachelor together) and then sat and waited for the sunset as we ate and drank. then around 730 the sun started to set and we got up and walked closer towards the sunset and when I turned around there was Robert on one knee with the most beautiful ring I had ever seen. I was completely shocked and couldn’t even believe what was happening! of course once my body actually understood what was happening I started crying of excitement. I get to marry the love of my life! We danced as we watched the sun set with Mamma Mia playing in the background (I had to do it) and I got my final rose. When we got back to the hotel I found out that every single person was in on the proposal. The room upgrade was done by Robert and once we got upstairs they had set up a trail of rose petals that led to the sitting area where a huge I love you was spelled out with rose petals and candles. I felt completely clueless for not realizing any of it was going to happen but so happy that Robert had made it so special.
The Greek Wedding Show
The greek wedding show at the white door theater in Fira was the perfect way to celebrate our engagement. What we loved about it was that it was all interactive so instead of just watching a show, you’re a part of it. All the guests are distant relatives that all come together for a wedding. We got to eat (have unlimited white wine) sing, and dance for 2 hours. I loved being able to experience that culture and really feel like I was part of a greek wedding. we even got to break plates and scream Opa as we danced around in a circle! It was by far one of the highlights of our trip (after getting engaged of course) more from the show on my instagram highlights in “Greece”
Huge thank you to Aressana Hotel and Spa for making the proposal so magical. The way they kept it all a secret while being incredibly discreet and setting up the most beautiful picnic and the hotel room with the rose petals. It is a nigh that I will never forget and everyone there will hold a special place in my heart for being so genuinely happy when I got back and told them that we were engaged.
