Mailin and Rolando’s Miami engagement session is just full of Old Hollywood Glamour and vintage flair. I am positively in love with their style, and they chose the perfect photographer to capture their engagement photos, Stephan of Maloman Photographers.
Mailin was kind enough to share their love story and the inspiration behind their session with us!
You know that famous saying, “when you know, you know,” well I must say that I finally understood this phrase when Roly and I went on our first date! It’s as if our hearts clicked and we had no control over it. People around us thought we were married and we had to convince them otherwise! We’re a one of a kind team, we cherish life daily and we are each other’s best fans. We cannot wait till our big day! Our dreams came true when we met each other.
Our wedding theme is a delicate blend of Old Hollywood Glamour with a touch of the Chanel look. Roly and I have a love for the classic era! Sometimes, I think we were meant to live in that era! We collect vintage cameras, records and timeless pieces that we can enjoy.
Their proposal story, as told by Mailin:
Over Christmas break, my family invited Roly to our annual Christmas Ski Trip! We were so excited to be spending time together in the mountains of Colorado. It was Roly’s first time skiing and to sum up the amazing time we had, we were the last one’s on the mountain!
It was getting towards the end of our trip and we were heading into the New Year! We were having a lovely dinner on New Years Eve at the magnificent restaurant in our hotel. Roly wasn’t feeling well, so he went up to the room. I was worried about him, so I went up to check on him, no answer. I then went downstairs to get the room key from my family to see how he was doing.
As I entered the room, I first looked in the bathroom, then as I proceeded saw candles leading to the balcony… I couldn’t believe my eyes. Could this be it? My heart pounded as I approached the balcony and there he was, standing out in the freezing cold with his coat, both hands in pocket.
He grabbed both of my hands and while looking in my eyes said, ”I can’t let another day go by without knowing you’re going to be my wife. I love you. Will you marry me?” After tears of joy, big hugs, and of course admiring the ring, we went downstairs to make the announcement! My family was all a part of the plan, and it was a most beautiful moment in my life!
