Zihao and Zishu have a long history and the most romantic love story! After meeting at a small high school, they had their first date on a snow day when Zihao asked if she would go out with him by writing her name in the snow.
On their first Valentine’s Day, Zihao surprised her with roses and chocolate. In the bouquet of roses, he included a beautiful glass rose and told Zishu he would love her until the last rose withered. Since then, the two of them have always appreciated romance and planning thoughtful gestures for one another.
When it came time for their engagement, Zihao wanted to put the same amount of emotion, romance, and thoughtfulness into his proposal. After contacting The Heart Bandits for some creative proposal ideas, Zihao chose a historic Seattle landmark and beautiful outdoor venue that’s full of greenery, architecture, and breathtaking views of Elliott Bay and the city skyline.
As he stood on the lawn, he held a lush bouquet of roses (her favorite flower) and waited for Zishu to arrive. When she turned the corner, her eyes widened with excitement as she saw a path of red and pink rose petals guiding her to Zihao. The roses formed together in a beautiful ombre, heart-shaped pattern, starting off light and getting darker at the end of the path.
With stunning views of the water as their backdrop and Zishu’s favorite flowers surrounding them, Zihao expressed his heartfelt feelings before getting down on one knee. With tears in her eyes and their friends waiting to surprise them, Zishu said “YES!”
