When Delia met Vince - the man who proposed with nine engagement rings

Published by in Headshots ·

Delia came in for headshots for her new book titled, "Good to the Fog". While we waited for the hairdresser, she told me the fascinating story of how she met her husband.

Delia was publishing a book in Romania and needed a landscape photo for her book cover. So she went on Flicker and found a perfect photo and contacted Vince the photographer who was in San Francisco for the permission to use the photo. That opened up the conversation and they both felt a strong connection with each other.

For the next two months, they exchanged emails and Vince spent $3,500 on international phone bills (that was before Skype existed). Vince decided that he should fly to Romania to meet Dalia in person. When the plane landed in Romania,  Delia has no idea the flight arrived several hours ahead of schedule. She was desperately looking for Vince at the airport but there was no sign of him. Broken hearted, Delia thought she has lost him as she wandered alone in the airport. Suddenly Vince jumped out from behind a column gave her a big warm hug.  In shock with mixed emotions, Delia got a crowded bus with Vince to downtown. Vince suddenly pulled out an engagement ring from the pocket and proposed to Delia on the bus. Delia just couldn't believe what just happened, but she said "yes"!

The next two years while they waited for the U.S. to approve the immigration, they visited nine countries in Europe. In each country, Vince would propose to Delia again with a new engagement ring. Delia has a total of nine engagement rings, and they are happily married ever since.
