Real Weddings: Sonimar Villegas and Ángel Avilés

Happy Monday! Today’s lovely couple actually celebrated their one year anniversary last week. In honor of their anniversary Sonimar takes us down memory lane and tells us the story about how Angel proposed.

From the Bride…He proposed to me on July 8, 2011 at El Morro, during one of his short visits to Puerto Rico. He is in the Navy and was stationed in California at that time. We went to J-Taste a sushi restaurant in Old San Juan to celebrate our 4th “month” anniversary. After dinner we walked to El Morro, where after a short conversation he began to explain his future plans and how he wanted to include me in all of them. He went down to his knees, took out the ring box from his pocket and said “Would you marry me”. I was surprised, speechless and in shock; he then told me “if you don’t take it…” The rest is history.
