How long have you known each other?
We have known each other for just over 3.5 years
How did you meet? Who, What, When, Where, Why? Common spill the beans!
We met at Cowboys in London. Dimitris will tell you that he made the first move but it was in fact my eye contact and smile that said “get back here and introduce yourself.” Dimitris was 22 when we met and I was 30. We both lied to each other the night we met, Dimitris saying he was 26 and I 25. I confessed later that night, he waited until the morning. Turns out age really is just a number.
When did you know your fiancé was “the one”? Was there something specific that he/she did?
Dimitris does not remember one distinct moment. I knew I loved him after our first New years together when I met his family. I knew he was the one when he started dancing with me one night in our kitchen while he sang Backstreet boys. I thought to myself “how could I not want to marry this guy”
What is your favourite thing about your fiancé?
Dimitris- her personality
Marlene- how secure he makes me feel
What do you love to do together?
Tell us about the proposal.
Dimitris came home from work one night with Leafs tickets. He said he got them from a co-worker and in exchange for the tickets, Dimitris had to go to the mall and pick something up for him. We stopped at the mall on our way to the game and I waited in the car while Dimitris ran in. I suspected that he may be picking up a ring but fast forward to 4 hours later and I still didn’t have a ring on my finger. We were at home after the game, I was lying in bed while Dimitris was getting his things organized for the following morning. Once finished, he knelt on the floor beside the bed and proposed.
Besides getting hitched, what was each of your favourite parts about the day?
Dimitris-the limo ride from the church to the hall because the most stressful part was over and he could relax.
Marlene-I loved the entire day but if I had to pick one part it would be the time Dimitris and I got to spend in the limo together alone once we dropped the wedding party at the hall. If gave us a chance to let it sink in
