A Love Story

I decided to propose to my girlfriend (now Fiance) with a romantic gondola ride on the Plaza. The person who assisted me to come up with a plan was very helpful, and pulled off the entire plan without a hitch! My now fiance was SO happy and pleased! Thank you Ambiance on the Water for a night to remember for life!
