Rachel and Nick

Rachel and Nick's Engagement in On Cruise Ship

How We Met

Nick and I met when I was 15 at a friend’s bonfire. After hours and hours of talking about our lives and crying of laughter, I knew there was something different about him. didn’t know how but I knew he’d be staying in my life. Ever since that night we were inseparable, not knowing for sure where we’d end up but knowing we wanted to be together. He’s the love of my life & my best friend and I couldn’t be more thankful I met him 6 years ago.

How They Asked

During the holiday season, my favorite season, Nick took me on a cruise to see the islands. On New Year’s Eve, after we get dressed up and enjoyed a beautiful cocktail hour out on our porch, we went up to the top deck to take pictures amidst the sunset. As we took our picture, my boyfriend turned to me and told me the past 4 and 1/2 years of dating had shown him a glimpse into the future that he wanted for his lifetime. He got down on one knee and said “I can’t go another year without being engaged to you. Will you marry me?”
