Phillip and Basia met almost 20 years ago.
Thanks to the friendship of their parents, Phillip and Basia have been in each other’s lives since the start of elementary school.
After not seeing each other for almost 4 years, a series of small and seemingly meaningless moments brought them back together.
It is safe to say that the happy beginnings of this love story are owed mostly to their parents.
After attending Phillip’s college graduation party, Basia’s Mom suggested that the two get back in touch.
The two exchanged some messages online, met to catch up, and have been together ever since the summer of 2010.
In the summer of 2011, the pair moved to Krakow, Poland where Basia began her medical studies at the
Jagiellonian University Medical College and Phillip began working as a software engineer at Lunar Logic.
During a visit to Paris with Basia’s Parents and Phillip’s Dad and Stepmom, Phillip proposed to Basia in the
secluded gardens of the Château de Fontainebleau with a gorgeous custom-made ring.
And now, you get to see them start their 'Happily Ever After'.
