Michele Velazquez: The Moment I Knew I Wanted To Marry My Spouse (VIDEO)

Sometimes you know you've met "The One" the first second you meet them. Other times, it takes a gesture of unconditional love to be certain you've met your mate.

In this video, proposal planner, romance expert and HuffPost blogger Michele Velazquez shares the moment she knew she wanted to marry her now-husband Marvin Velazquez -- a day when she was feeling grouchy and Marvin showed her care and compassion.

After Marvin proposed in 2010, Michele was inspired to start The Heart Bandits, a proposal planning company that the pair now co-own. The Heart Bandits also help couples plan ultra-romantic date nights.

Velazquez's video is part of a site-wide video series on The Huffington Post in which readers share stories of pivotal moments in their lives.
