How did you two meet? Tell us your story.
We met on a cruise very unexpectedly! We both weren’t suppose to be there but fate worked its magic ways and we both were on the boat departing out of Miami. We met on the top deck as the boat pulled away and I knew he was different and he knew he wanted to be with me too.
Describe the proposal.
The proposal was AMAZING! He really went all out! He planned a surprise vacation to go back on a second cruise (this time together!) he bought the ring, asked my family and stole my passport! All before whisking me away in the car for an 8 hr drive to Florida! I was so surprised that he planned all that. He hurried me up to the deck after putting our bags away and had a photographer capture it all! Everything from him praying with me to popping the question in the same spot we met in 2.5 years earlier! In Love!
What was your favorite memory from the proposal?
My favorite memory was all the effort he put into it! He was so sweet and the fact that he prayed with me first reassured me that I had a keeper! From the planning to all the details it was perfect. And the fact that we got a 7 day all inclusive vacation to the Caribbean afterwards was icing on the cake!
