During a trip to Regina's home city of Mexico City, Lisana and Regina had traveled to the Teotihuacan Pyramids, about an hour outside the city, and after meditating as the sun dipped down behind the ancient structures, they both realized that they wanted forever. “I remember vividly coming down and it hit me deep in my soul like a ton of bricks, this message from God, this is the woman I want to spend the rest of my life with and I don’t care how, what, when I just know she’s the one. Later that evening we drove to another sacred place and Regina had booked a room at this resort. She shared with me that night she wanted me to be her wife and we both made a verbal commitment to be together forever.”
So when it came time to propose, Lisana knew that it had to take place at this site that played such a significant role in their relationship, and proposing in Regina's homeland also allowed Lisana to have her friends and family involved.
Disguised as a photo shoot for their joint Instagram account, they casually posed for photographer Rob Aguilar, while Lisana was secretly trying to keep her cool. “As we got closer and closer to the Pyramid of the Moon, I was more and more nervous but ready for the big moment. We finally climbed the pyramid and the signal I was supposed to give the camera crew was in regards to the weather so that they could be ready to capture the moment! We stood close to the edge and as Regina stood in front of me, I opened my mouth to start and my whole body started trembling! The second I got down on one knee I felt like I had blacked out, it was such an out-of-body experience, that I almost forgot to say, “Will you marry me?’” she laughs. “I had told her that I wanted to bring her to this special place because it was where God I had placed in my heart that this would be the woman I spent the rest of my life with.”
Lisana got down on one knee and presented a two-carat diamond in a classic setting. Regina immediately responses with an enthusiastic “SI!” and after a few more post-engagement photos, they headed to the Four Seasons in Mexico City, where Lisana had organized an engagement party with friends and family to celebrate. ” I had asked a couple of her other friends to join and be there waiting, as well as her three sisters and her brother would be showing up for dinner. This was extremely important and special because her mom has taken time in being ‘okay' with the whole concept of our relationship, but wasn’t apart of the plans, so having the support of her siblings was really emotional. Even her oldest sister came who was also not 100% comfortable but did want to show her love and support. We took more photos and videos and right at the end her family entered the courtyard and Regina was shocked! We all had a private dinner together and it truly was the best day of our lives!”
