We look at movies to offer an escape from daily life and romantic happily ever afters. Well, for Heber and Katian, this became a reality.

Heber and Katian first met while working at a movie theater in 2007. She used to work the concession stand, while Heber worked as an usher; if this isn’t the perfect recipe for a romantic movie, I don’t know what is. 

After seven and a half years full of romance and many adventures, Heber, decided to make their romantic movie ending a reality. Like the true gentleman he is, he knew he needed to get blessings from Katian’s family. On a day that Katian was working, he decided to personally visit and ask her parents approval on the marriage.

After Heber received her family’s blessing it was time for their happily ever after to begin. On a delightfully starry night while walking in Old San Juan, Heber and Katian wondered onto the grassy hills of the beautiful ancient castle of El Morro. There, while sitting next to each other, with the castle in the background, the grass underneath, and the bright stars above them, he proposed.
