How We Met
My fiancé and I Intailly met in high school and went to middle school together but didn’t know each other. Fast forward to 8 years later we reconnected through social media and have been inseparable since.
How They Asked
My “then-boyfriend” and I were on vacation in Hawaii celebrating my birthday. Prior to leaving on vacation, my boyfriend said, “I want to plan something special for you on your birthday.” I of course asked what it was and he stated “it’s something we have always wanted to do.” I was clueless as to what it was. Fast forward to my birthday we arrive at the absolutely breathing-taking Lanikai Beach. Set up as a surprise is a tent with pillows and picnic, wine, and snacks.
I was so surprised but still thought this was for my birthday. An hour goes by and we are enjoying each other’s company, then the photographer shows up and is like here is another surprise we are going to do a photo shoot. My partner takes his pictures and then I take my pictures. As we take pictures together the photographer says say one thing you appreciate about your partner. My boyfriend says to me, “I appreciate your strength and willpower.” Tears then begin to roll down his eyes as he says, “because without you I don’t think we would be here today.” He then says “I love you” and gets down on one knee to propose. I was in shock and I said “of course!”
After the proposal, he shows me the phone and my entire family was on a zoom witnessing the whole thing and congratulating us. It was truly a magical evening and I will cherish the memories forever.
