How We Met
We first locked eyes on each other in passing at a music festival in Queensland Australia in April 2011.
Our friends would spend time together and eventually we started communicating on facebook. That then lead to spending hours at a time talking on Skype!
One thing lead to another, and a year later I moved down to his area (near Byron Bay New South Wales Australia) and he asked me out at a hungry jacks one night!
how they asked
The morning of my birthday my now fiance’ Michael gave me a beautiful red rose. We spent time together all day and enjoyed the cruise. In the afternoon he told me that we have a reservation at 6 pm. So we went to a really fancy paid restaurant on the ship. When we got there he gave me a beautiful necklace for my birthday. When it was dessert time, the waiter put a plate in front of me with a lid on it. Michael reached over and removed the lid. It was full of chocolate moulds in a ring, with a diamond ring box in the centre. I looked back over to Michaels seat and he wasn’t there. He was on his knees tearing up, “emily, I want to spend the rest of my life with you, will you marry me”?
I said “YES YES YES YES”, then as he was asking, a photographer jumped out and took photos. Everyone was clapping and cheering! It was the best day of my life. We have been together for 4 years and 3 months.
