How We Met

Brian and I met in high school when he was 15 and I was 17. We started dating on September 1, 2009 and quickly became inseparable best friends.

How They Asked

Throughout our relationship we went to the Cape multiple times a year for vacations and day trips. This soon became our favorite place and we would walk to our favorite spot on the private beach of Edgewater Beach Resort. We would look at each other and the water, count to three, and take a deep breath because this was the one place where nothing else in the world mattered and we felt completely at ease and relaxed. On August 1, 2020 Brian took me on a day trip to the Cape, like we’ve done so many times. We arrived at the Edgewater Beach Resort, walked to our spot, counted to three and took our deep breath. As we looked out to the ocean, told me how much he loved me and said “We’ve been coming to this beach for 10 years now. We’ve made a lot of memories here and there are still a lot of memories to make…. Starting with this one. Will you marry me?” He was down on one knee with the ring box open. His friend was there taking pictures of the whole thing. I of course said yes and cried so much out of pure bliss. We then celebrated by going to some of our favorite places like the Summer Shanty for drinks and apps then The Ocean House for drinks, dinner and dessert ❤️ On our ride home, our song came on the radio making a perfect ending to the best day of our lives. An absolutely perfect day beyond my wildest dreams.
