Every minute working with them has been a blast…seriously. Their wedding at the Lioncrest on the Biltmore Estate is on 4th of July…how fun is that? Read more about them…
How did you meet each other?
Eric and I met sitting across the aisle from one another on a plane. He asked me what time it was, smooth moves! 🙂
How long have you two been together?
We have been together for 5 years
When did you get engaged, and how did he ask?
We got engaged in the Maldives. Eric asked me to go to a private island for sundowners. He took me through a coconut grove and convinced me to check out some crabs in a large pot. It ended up that he had the ring planted there, he fished it out, turned around on one knee and asked me to marry him. He had Maldivian drums come out from behind us, champagne on the beach and sunset and a dinner on a private island with our own chef and waiter.
What do you two do for a living?
Eric is a Project Manager for Development Company in Dubai and Laura is a Sales Manager for an Organic Distribution Company in Dubai
What are some of the activities that you like to do together as a couple?
