Love Story: Michael + Lisa


It was love at first sight. Michael Perez, 28, spotted Lisa Nguyen, 28, from across the room, and they have been inseparable ever since. This is their love story…

How did you two meet?

IMG_3013M: Lisa came into the store for an eye exam, and I noticed her from a distance. She wrote her number on the back of one of my cards, which I still have in my wallet to this day.

L: He was working at America’s Best Contacts, and I was a patient with an ongoing eye infection. Long story short, I had eyes for him but never had the guts to talk to him.

Describe your partner in three words.

M: Loving, perfectionist, and goofy

L: Compassionate, determined, and caring

Tell me about the proposal from your own perspective.

M: I asked her to marry me at the Waldorf Astoria in Boca Raton, Florida. The game plan didn’t go as planned, but the most important thing is that she said yes!

L: He proposed to me on our mini getaway in December. We went out to dinner, and when we got back to the room it was, full of roses. I looked back to Michael, and he was on one knee asking me to marry him. Of course I said yes!Ring Shot

What was your experience like shopping for the ring at Diamonds Direct? Tell us why you love the ring.

M: Diamonds Direct went above and beyond to make sure that we got the perfect ring and diamond at the budget I had set.

L: The service was awesome! They were super knowledgeable and helpful. I knew nothing about rings/diamonds, and they helped us find the perfect one.

Now that you’ve found “the one,” what advice would you give to someone else about love?

M: Love will find you when you’re not looking for it, so live life to the fullest and never change the person you are because there is someone out there that will love you for the way you are.

L: Love sometimes can’t be explained. When you find “the one,” you will know. Nothing will make sense without them. Be patient, and the right one will come around.
