I Knew It Was You

Laurentis, with his heart set on proposing to his girlfriend from the same hometown, meticulously planned every detail.

And then, with a heartfelt gesture, Laurentis got down on one knee, sealing the surprise with the most important question. Shani’s reaction was pure and genuine, exclaiming a resounding “yes!” that filled the air with delight and love.
