Samantha and Douglas

How We Met

We met from being friends in 2008, we were in 8th and 9th grade but we never had feelings towards each other. We went on throughout different high schools and dated other people. We saw each other my senior year and started talking again, and that’s when we have it a shot, on April 6, 2012.

how they asked

My best friend after 6 years proposed to me while we were on vacation. We’ve never had a desire to visit this museum, but this time around to Florida he was begging me to go… and I kept dragging my feet and was miserable to be there (now I feel bad). A girl asked if she could take photos of us for a travel magazine and my boyfriend said, “hold on, you know what would make this picture even better?” And he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! Meanwhile, she was a hired Photographer the whole time! I was so thrown off I had him repeat what he said during the proposal so I could remember it forever.
