Sammy and Zach

how we met

We met online. Our first date was supposed to be Warped Tour 2015, but it didn’t work out. So instead we met at Buffalo Wild Wings and ate a ridiculous amount of food.

how they asked

The proposal was amazing and I was completely surprised. For the past 3 years we’ve gone to Rehoboth Beach Delaware at the beginning of July with my family for vacation. Last year when we went (2019) we arrived late afternoon on Saturday. Normally we would go on the boardwalk every night but I we were exhausted from the trip so we stayed in for the night. Then Sunday night it was boardwalk time, and I always get Italian ice every time we go. I had just gotten my Italian ice and my family, Zach and I were just talking and enjoying our treats. Most of of family was sitting on a bench but Zach, and I were standing since there was no room. He was behind me and I was facing the bench talking to my mom. Then Zach called my name so I turned around and there he was, down on one knee with the ring in his hand. I was completely shocked and extremely happy. It was just an amazing feeling and I was so surprised how well he kept it a secret. So I found out that he had been planning to do this since January of 2019 and he proposed July 7th, 2019. That’s a long time to keep that a secret! He had been talking to my mom and my nana about rings and coming up with a plan. He told me that his original plan was to propose during the fireworks on the 4th of a July but that didn’t work out because I refused to stand up. I was comfy sitting on the blanket enjoying the fireworks and didn’t realize what he was trying to do! So I messed that plan up, but he told me that his backup plan was to propose when we went to Rehoboth Beach so it all worked out!
