Hakan proposed on a warm summer night, in Istanbul. Christina was just visiting for a regular weekend in Istanbul while Hakan was working out there for the summer. Little did she know that this “regular” weekend would change her life!
Long Story Short: They went for dinner at Maiden Tower (above) which lies in between the Asian and European sides of Istanbul. It’s right smack in the middle of the Bosphorus. It was the way Hakan always dreamed it would be…in the city which he loves, looking into the eyes of the girl that he loves. Christina may have had a bit too much wine that night, and thought she was dreaming, but the tears of happiness proved to be one of the best days of her life!
Their journey may have only begun a year before in NYC — but now they have the rest of their life together to look forward to.
