When one of our own SweetEscape people tied the knot, it’s a parade of endless joy. True is the case with Nikita who is one of own supergirls in the office. Her bubbly and exuberant outlook on life is only a match to her clear bright smiles. Together with Mike, we imagine that their days are similar to endless midsummer dream, every bit fun and vibrant with extra romance factor in between.
"To start off, we both pursued our educations in Vancouver but never got the chance to hang out properly together. It was only after our return to their hometown Jakarta that we both began to see each other as a couple. Just goes to show that love works mysteriously, right?
Our first encounter in Jakarta happened during a party scene. Both partygoers, Mike and I didn’t exactly hit it off during the first year of our relationship. In fact, it was tumultuous and quite rocky as both our personalities were not exactly on the same grid. I lean on the perfectionist side while Mike carries himself more casually.
Still, it all pays off because despite his cool demeanor, Mike handles our relationship with the patience and grace that a real gentleman has. Being the first one to apologize and make up during fights, it was not long for me to find out that I indeed got a winner on my heart.
After 2,5 years of dating, we knew that we’re heading on a steady path to marriage. Still, Mike had a special surprise up his sleeve! Requesting me to dress up one night, we both went out and partied together with our friends.
While I had my suspicion, I was too tipsy to realize that the bouquet and a ring were already waiting on me in the bathroom. I remembered asking Mike what those items are for and I shouted a loud “ YASSS!” when he popped the question.
The next morning, I was unclear about the details - but I wore a big smile all day, because I remembered one most important thing, I was finally engaged!"
