De’Von and Nikki
How They Asked
What was planned to be a romantic dinner at a beautiful Nassau beachfront restaurant ended up as the best surprise proposal ever. Nikki and I had planned a trip to the beautiful Caribbean islands months ahead and I knew that at this moment in paradise I had to ask her to spend the rest of her life with me. On the day we arrived in downtown Nassau we were greeted by a private driver who began to unfold the events for the evening. We journeyed for about 15 minutes until we arrived at the breath-taking Sapodilla Estates. There we were greeted with champagne and two lovely butlers who provided immaculate service the entire evening.
Once on property, we were led to a private cabana where little did she know dinner would be prepared table-side while a local islander serenaded us with sounds from a steel drum. After what was the best meal I had in a while, I rushingly told Nikki we have to walk out to the gazebo quickly and catch the island sunset. Little did she know, a photographer would be hiding to capture the moment that I got down on one knee to ask her to spend the rest of her life with me. I am so blessed that a swipe right turned into me getting to marry my best friend and spend the rest of this lifetime with her.
