how we met
We met at a mutual friend’s wedding.
how they asked
We were in Hawaii with a group of friends. After a long day hiking through a muddy rainforest to a waterfall, we decided to watch the sunset on the North Shore. Our dear friend Donna, who is a photographer, started grabbing some shots of us walking along the beach. At one point, I turned around to find Ian on one knee. I’m a crier so I immediately burst in to tears and said yes! After four years together, I want to say I wasn’t surprised, but nothing prepared me for how incredible that moment was.
As for the ring, it’s a simple oval solitaire. Ian knew I wanted an ethically sourced diamond so he went with a lab-created stone. Just another way he pays attention to the little things.
