Erica and Cory

Engagement Proposal Ideas in Barrington, Rhode Island

How We Met

Cory and I have actually known each other most of our lives! He grew up on the same street as my best friend and would often come and play/hang out. We both dated other people for several years and ended said relationships right around the same time. It wasn’t until my best friend decided to take a job in Florida that Cory and I ran into each other again. We hung out alone for the first time a few days later and the rest is history!

Not far into our relationship we found out we were pregnant with our first daughter. We have another daughter now and both girls will be our flower girls!

How They Asked

The day Cory proposed he told me we were going to the pond we used to visit in our early dating days. I joked with him and said, “aww are you going to propose!?” He rolled his eyes and just brushed me off but you can imagine I felt terrible for even making the joke when I realized he actually was proposing!

It was just him and I, our firstborn (we hadn’t had our second yet) and our dog Penny. It was private and intimate, just the way I always hoped it would be. He got down on one knee and said: “I love you, will you be my wife?” He mentioned later on that he had a whole speech he wanted to share with me but was so afraid in the moment our daughter was about to run down the hill to the water! Haha so like us, beautiful chaos! ??‍♀️

After I said yes, before even looking at the ring, I started sobbing at how beautiful it was – the smart guy had it custom made We looked at our daughter and said, “Mommy and Daddy are going to get married, do you want to be our flower girl!?” She shrugged her shoulders and said, “nah I don’t want to be in a wedding.” I’m happy to report she is now very excited to be a part of the day!
