Knowing that the concert was going to be loud, Michael decided to change things up and proposed to her with a series of articles that revealed a touching message, one by one. “I have good news and bad news. I can’t be your boyfriend anymore. Because I want to be your husband. Will you marry me?”

Watch him kneel here:

Find the perfect place

It was after celebrating their first anniversary last year that Michael knew he wanted to pop the special question. And so he set out on his quest to find the perfect destination to begin his forever journey.

“I really wanted to go somewhere warm, but as someone who has high standards, there weren’t many options,” said Michael, a 39-year-old journalist originally from Los Angeles. As a native of Los Angeles, Russian winters are not so easy for him.

He considered three things before deciding on Dubai. “The first thing was that I could communicate freely, since English is my main language. Secondly, the level of service was an important aspect for me. There are many places that advertise five stars, but they often don’t even live up to the three”. . And finally, security.”

“Once I considered all that, Dubai was the only logical choice. Mind you, I had never been and Kati had never been, but everything I found in my research showed that it was the kind of place where we could really rest, relax and make special memories . but without the sin of ‘Sin City,’ also known as Las Vegas,” said Mohammad, who comes from a Middle Eastern background but moved to Los Angeles when he was a baby.

“Values ​​are really important to us and I don’t want to spoil this special moment. So I chose Dubai and I’m really glad I did.”

As a huge Ed Sheeran fan, it felt like fate when Michael found out about the singer’s concert date online. He immediately booked the tickets and surprised his now-fiancé on New Year’s Eve. “In Russia it’s customary to exchange gifts, so on New Year’s I had the tickets ready and the concert tickets reserved and I gave them to her. She was very excited.”

Speaking about his 35-year-old fiancée, who works at an international women’s fashion company, Michael gushed about his future wife.

“We are complete opposites. I take risks; she is a wise soul. I love to sing and dance, and she loves to read and meditate. But from the day I met her, I finally found someone who made me feel grounded.” , and she found a dreamer to brighten her day.”

Saying “yes” in Dubai

At the concert, Michael held the ring tightly as he anxiously waited for Ed Sheeran to play. Perfect – the final step of his plan.

“One by one, they played songs and I became more and more nervous. It got to the point where I couldn’t even enjoy the music because I was waiting apprehensively for the song to come on.”

Then suddenly she heard him play the first romantic song of the night, which was Thinking out loud. “I got everything mixed up and confused it with Perfect“Miguel said.

The crowd around them instantly took notice of their intimate moment and formed a large circle, giving them space. The next thing he knew, Ekaterina was kneeling on the floor, hugging him. His response to her? A sincere “yes” as tears ran down her face.

For Michael, even though the proposal didn’t go as planned and was “perfect,” it resonated with a different song at the time. “Like the lyrics of the song. Thinking out loud ‘Under the light of a thousand stars, we found love right where we were.’ And that place was Dubai.”
