Ashleigh and Dominic

How We Met

Dominic and I met on Snapchat. We were friends for a while before we started talking to each other. Soon after we started speaking, we met in person at Pelicans in Charlotte, NC. We were so nervous but our chemistry flowed just as well as it did on Snapchat. We talked and laughed for hours. It was a great first date.

How They Asked

We were on a cruise excursion to an island in Cozumel, Mexico. As we were leaving, the captain stated that we would all be playing a game. As we all went to the front of the boat, we all stood around as the captain explained that the game required two players. He pointed to myself and my fiance. We both walked to the center of the circle. He asked me to sit down as he explained the rules which were that the other player would hold out something in front of me and I would have to guess what it was in the time given with me being blindfolded. When the game started, a blindfold was placed over my eyes and the countdown started from 5 to 1. I reached out in front of me to feel, however, as the crowd reached to one, the blindfold was taken off and my fiance was on his knee holding out the ring. He then asked me to marry him and of course, I said yes. We hugged and kissed as the crowd yelled in awe and congratulations. Afterward, we received specialized drinks from the captain and danced all the way back to the cruise port.
