Surprise Proposal Leads to Lovely September Wedding
After finding cheap plane tickets, Dylan and Kayla decided to take the plunge and plan a spontaneous two-week trip to Italy and France. Dylan realized that the trip would be the perfect time for his long-awaited proposal, so he set a plan in motion, contacting a photographer in Rome and setting up his surprise. By telling Kayla he found a Groupon for a couple's photography session, he was able to get her to the Colosseum in a dress and signal their arrival to the photographer. After five months of planning, Dylan finally got down on one knee and asked Kayla to marry him, and she said "yes!" In a magical finale to the day, the couple ate dinner at a rooftop restaurant overlooking the Colosseum, where Elton John, purely by coincidence, happened to be playing a concert. The happily engaged couple enjoyed their meal, listening to the Rocket Man's songs, while people danced in the street below.
