The Love Boat

November 11, 2012
We got engaged in an aquarium. It was the first time I was truly surprised, and not because of the shark right by my side. I had no idea the ring was coming. We've known each other for a short time, but there was something about him that felt... comfortable. He knows me better than I know myself, and his little gestures of love is what won me over. He surprised me with a gift: 20-minute dive inside the Dubai Aquarium (an activity he swore he'll never do). And at the bottom of the tank he popped the question. I was scared and having trouble controlling my breathing, yet managed to make one of the best decisions of my life. "Yes!" Well, I couldn't say it but I signaled ok with my hands. Staying with the water theme, we planned a small dinner cruise wedding and found the perfect venue: Bateaux Dubai on the creek. It's so beautifully designed, so we kept the decor simple and elegant. Layering different hues of purple and pink, the incredible florist paired the arrangements with white and natural greens to create stunning centerpieces. The three course set menu was impressive. A gourmet twist on surf and turf, but it was the dark chocolate fondant that was the star of the night. Rich, decadent and sweet, we still have guests telling us it was the best dessert they've ever had. After the wedding, Faris and I made a pact to each other to return to the Bateaux every anniversary. And every June 11th, we take a cruise down memory lane... and a bite of that delicious chocolate fondant.
