This is one of those engagements where your heart swells up with joy and their love is so cute it might make you cry.
Former Olympic diver Jimmy Sjödin had no idea what his boyfriend Patrick Huber had planned for their vacation. Patrick told Jimmy to pack a bag and didn’t tell him where they were traveling to. The only thing he told him was a cryptically saying it’s a place he’s always wanted to visit.
Patrick’s trip had them starting from their home Munich, Germany and driving down through the Italian Alps and ending in Venice. It was there that Patrick finally proposed to Jimmy and he had the entire thing planned out to a tee.
He proposed to Jimmy on a gondola ride. He hired a professional photographer who was dubbed as their tour guide so she could snap the before, during and after moments of the proposal and he had a HuffPost reporter standing by.
Jimmy was in such shock from the proposal that he barely remembers what happened. “All I can recall was something about wanting to always be there for me, to protect me and be my family and wanting to be my ‘forever boyfriend.'”
Isn’t that the cutest thing you’ve ever heard? Obviously Jimmy said yes.
This proposal was literally out of a fairytale. I’m so glad the secret photographer captured their special moment because now we can all bask in their love.
