Love actually: real couples getting married at city hall 1
Stephanie Marquez, 27, sales assistant &
Mehdi Arma, 28, facilities for Showtime
*How did you two meet?
Stephanie: We met via an app for the iPhone called MiUMeet.
Mehdi: It was meant to be.
*Were you nervous on your first date?
Stephanie: I wasn’t nervous, but I was getting to the point where I was like, “If this guy is not decent, I’m gonna stop dating for a while.” But then he turned out to be amazing.
Mehdi: She was perfect. She wasn’t a psycho or a stalker.
*Interesting definition of perfect! Tell me about the proposal.
Mehdi: I put the ring in a plastic bag and I threw it on the floor and I said, “Look at this mess, you should pick that up.”
Stephanie: It was midnight. I was like, “I’m tired, I wanna relax, what’s your problem?” He went and picked it up and then he got down on one knee and pulled the ring box out of the bag. I was so happy!
*What’s your favorite thing about each other?
Stephanie: I could just talk to him and be myself and not have to think about what I’m gonna say or worry about how he’s gonna react.
Ahmed: Everything. She makes me happy.
