Neither had any intention of meeting anyone that night. But fate had brought them both to a bar in Camden called Underworld. There on the dance floor, the inevitable happened. They saw each other. The Universe had brought Karah 5,000 miles away from her home to meet Michael. She was in England, studying fashion. Within minutes, Michael and Karah were gravitating towards each other. And as if they had known each other before, they kissed.
Michael brought her a drink, got her info and left. He was the designated driver. The next day, Karah woke up to a message and a dinner invitation. It was on that first date that Michael knew she was the one. He did not want to be apart from her. But within a month, Karah was leaving to return home.
Michael bought an airplane ticket and Karah had an awkward conversation with her parents that she was bringing home someone for them to meet. Understandably, there was a bit of concern. Then they met him and saw why Karah did not doubt that they would always be together.
Michael loved Karah. She was the most selfless and empathetic person he had ever met. She had a heart of gold. There is not a day that goes by that he doesn’t step back and and appreciate how lucky he is.
A long distance relationship had begun. Michael proposed in Boston in 2018. It was a very in the moment proposal. Then the pandemic happened. They were married in a simple court wedding in London. Of course, family and friends were not able to attend and so a second wedding has been planned.
A second wedding meant a second proposal. There on the Redondo Pier, a place so enjoyed by Karah’s family, Michael got down on one knee as the sun was setting and asked her to marry him. He gave her a second ring. Karah, of course said, ” Yes!!!,”….again.
