How We Met

Emmanuel and I met in high school and clicked instantly! We always laugh about how we met because we were out at a school dance with other people and just naturally gravitated to each other after that night. Unfortunately, we sort of drifted apart between high school and starting college (over petty high school drama that we don’t even remember haha), but he reached out to me at the end of our freshmen year and we started officially dating that following summer. We’ve now been dating for 6 and a half years. He proposed on our anniversary trip this past summer in Mexico!

How They Asked

We went to Cancun this past July for our 6th anniversary. We had been planning to take anniversary pictures on the beach for a while (very lowkey, no photographer just us and our tripod). He ended up telling me that afternoon that we were going to a different beach. The taxi ride took about 20 mins and I had no idea where we were going. I assumed it was some beach he’d found on tik tok that would have less tourists around. However when we got there a lady greeted us (I just thought he had hired us a photographer for the pictures) but she directed us up this hill to the beach and there was a red aisle lit with candles leading to giant letters saying ‘Marry Me.’ I literally could not have asked for a better proposal.
