In the summer of 2013, Alex’s friend invited him out to meet friends of his new girlfriend. At first, Alex — who had early-morning plans the next day — was hesitant. “Little did I know, that was where I would meet my future wife, Monica — I guess you can call that fate,” he says.
Alex was completing his final year of a Master of Laws in London, United Kingdom, while Monica began her law school career in the same city. After being together for five months, the couple decided to move in together. “We were so lucky to have been able to live together in a foreign country, and our relationship grew stronger and closer; we were inseparable,” explains Alex. Fast forward to October 2019. Alex decided it was only right to propose in the city where the two fell in love. He planned to pop the question close to Monica’s birthday, so with the help of The Proposers, he got to work planning a proposal at London’s Shangri-La The Shard.
After Monica’s birthday celebration in Toronto, Alex surprised her with two airplane tickets and asked her to pack her bags for a birthday getaway. Once she found out (at the airport!) that they were going back to London, she was thrilled. Upon arrival, the two went out for dinner while an event planner decorated their hotel room. When they returned, Monica was at a loss for words! Alex walked her down an aisle of flower petals to a view of the skyline, got down on one knee, and proposed.
Monica and Alex were married on October 9, 2021, at the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto, with full-service planning, decor, and event design provided by Fleur Weddings Inc Fleur Weddings is a specialty wedding planning company focusing on the needs of Asian clientele. . The opulent wedding was designed around an “opulent garden” theme and planned and designed in only TWO months to accommodate the uncertainties of the pandemic. Since Monica has a green thumb and loves flowers, decor and design were a top priority!
