How did you two meet?
D: Naz was good friends with my longtime best friend and, in a strange turn of events, I went to prom with her sister!
N: We met in high school—I didn’t start liking him until a few years later, when he took my sister to prom.
What is your favorite thing to do together as a couple?
D: We love to travel together.
N: I absolutely love to bake desserts with Dylan—I call him my “sous chef.” I usually get him to do the parts I don’t like, like stirring with the mixer, but he doesn’t seem to mind!
What is your favorite thing about your partner?
D: Her honesty. She and I tell each other everything and I think that is one of the major reasons why our relationship is so strong.
N: His principles. He is such a good man, which is why I think he is going to make a great husband and, one day, a great father.
D: With the help of a friend, I had arranged a surprise three-course romantic candlelight dinner for two on the Wiener Riesenrad, a large, well-known Ferris wheel in Vienna, Austria. When the Ferris wheel made it to the top for the first time and we got our first view of the city, the moment was too perfect to pass up.
N: Dylan’s proposal was so much more than anything I had ever dreamed of. It was a fairytale come true.
What was your experience like shopping for the ring at Diamonds Direct?
D: My experience at Diamonds Direct was great!
N: This ring is the most beautiful ring I have ever seen! It’s perfect in every way.
Now that you’ve found “the one,” what advice would you give to someone else about love?
D: Be patient. Find someone that you can be comfortable and totally open with.
N: Find someone you can talk to about anything and be yourself with.
D: I am excited to take more trips with Naz and make more memories together.
N: I am looking forward to just having him there with me for the rest of my life.
