Emily and Logan

Engagement Proposal Ideas in St. Pete Beach, Florida

How We Met

Logan and I have known each other since primary school. In fact, Logan breifly had a crush on me in second grade after he saw me sing in the school talent show, and years later I briefly had a crush on him in middle school when he was a basketball player and I was a cheerleader. However, it wasn’t until our freshmen year of high school that we started having classes together and becoming friends.

Summer after our sophomore year of high school we started FaceTiming for hours, and it was then that our friendship started I progress. All through the rest of high school, everyone knew (including ourselves) that there was something between us, but we never made it official. Luckily high school graduation wasn’t the end of our story. We ended up going to the same college, and our freshmen year of college we spent practically every minute together. On May 12, 2015, after we had just wrapped up our freshmen year, we FINALLY made it official, and I am SO glad we did!

How They Asked

Every summer since 2015, I have gone to St. Pete Beach, Florida with Logan and his family. When we found out his family wasn’t planning to go this year, we decided to book our own trip and bring Logan’s 18-year-old niece along who has become one of my best friends. Just like every year, we planned to get dressed up and go take pictures on the beach. On the way to our usual picture spot, it began to POUR rain! I was pretty disappointed because I had come in from the beach early to get ready for pictures, and I didn’t want to have to do that another night if we got rained out. Luckily by the time, we made it to our usual spot, the rain was gone. You could still hear thunder and see storm clouds in both directions, but no rain at all and clear skies where we were.

I was so relieved! Logan first started taking pictures of his niece, India, and I, and then we switched and India took pictures of Logan and I. After Logan looked at our pictures, he said he wanted to take one more. It was then that I saw him pull out the ring box and start to get down on one knee. I was in complete shock and beyond ecstatic!!!! I can’t describe my joy at the moment. I am beyond ready to marry the man I have been crushing on since I was 16 years old!
