Their Engagement Story:
Lila’s uncle was visiting her in San Francisco for the first time. He was flying from Iran. A couple of days before his flight, he called Lila and said there is a change of plans. He was going to see his friend in Washington before he flies to California, while he was in Washington, his friend offered him a trip to Phoenix for some business meetings he had around here. They flew here and his friend contacted Steve (then she and her uncle didn’t know him) and Steve made them dinner and gave them a tour of Grand Canyon. On that road trip, my uncle really liked Steve and asked him, “Why are you single and not married?” Steve told him that he was busy with his life and at the same time he didn’t know any Persian girl here since he is from New York originally. Right away my uncle told him about Lila being his Niece and that she lived in San Francisco and gave him my number, of course Steve never called me because we all know unless a girl passes her number a gentleman never will call.
Couple of weeks later, Lila took her uncle to Las Vegas to show him around and he called Steve telling him to come and see us in Las Vegas. At first he said, “I don’t have time and” … and all of the sudden he showed up the last hours Lila and her uncle were there on Christmas day, we met on Christmas day in Las Vegas.
Although she didn’t give him any chance for the next few months to get close and talks about his feelings, he never gave up, he sent her flowers for her birthday on Jan 26th and Valentines day and she finally said yes in July. Lila feels like the luckiest and happiest woman.
Their Wedding Day Theme Plan
Lila’s dream wedding day is when her whole family is around. She would like all her flowers to be white, all roses but what is important to them is to be happy and take life as it is and enjoy one another every second in life. Love themselves and everyone around them. Lila always imagined herself in a long soft silk dress and a long veil. She loves long veils and thinks it’s dreamy.
What the couple believes is special about their wedding that makes them feel they should win this free sponsorship?
Everything, we are special people, because the way we look at life. We gave each other time to learn about each other and we went through some tough times. WE PASSED OUR TEST and I am proud of ourselves. We did it with passion, positive attitude and respecting each other.
I still don’t have my dress, I just saw the dress of my dream in a boutique, but I am not going to tell him, because we can’t afford to buy this dress for $775 (on sale) it’s the most beautiful dress.
I think every one deserves the best in the world, I think we need love and kindness and that is enough for living.
