Steve and Lani

Steve and Lani met for the first time on a Sunday afternoon in June 2003. They were both participating in the Philippine Independence Day parade when a mutual friend introduced them. There was an instant attraction the moment they saw each other.

But it wasn't until spring, after a concert at the Hippodrome in Baltimore, that they officially started dating.

Once Steve graduated from Loyola Blakefield, and Lani from Notre Dame Prep, they both went to University of Maryland, College Park.

After eight years of dating, Steve planned his surprise proposal. The day after Steve's birthday, Steve and Lani were dressed up to head out for a birthday dinner with their college friends in Baltimore. Steve picked Lani up early and suggested taking pictures before dinner in Federal Hill since it was such a nice day.

Once they reached the top of Federal Hill and took in the breathtaking view, Steve started talking about the past eight years and how he wanted to be together forever. He got down on one knee, took the top off an engraved box and asked Lani to marry him.

The best surprise? His friend was hiding and taking pictures of the whole proposal. The emotions and surprises were captured forever to share with friends and family.

Steve and Lani are planning a wedding in June 2013 in Baltimore. Photo credit: Michael Marana.
