Daniel Hogue had all the chances in the world to propose to his childhood sweetheart Anne Marie Jalbert, however for such a momentous occasion he knew the only way to go was overboard…literally. During the couple’s recent vacation to the Sandals Whitehouse European Village and Spa on the southern coast of Jamaica, the groom-to-be masterminded the perfect setting for his proposal when he sought the help of the resort’s underwater photographer and dive team and encouraged his girlfriend to go scuba diving with him.
“Even though many opportunities presented themselves before, I wanted to do something that had a special meaning for both of us,” said Hogue. That something special was an underwater proposal that took the couple back to their first encounter. “Daniel proposed to me while we were preparing to scuba dive together and that has a big meaning for both of us. We met in a pool at school while learning to dive,” Jalbert revealed with a broad smile. “He did it to remind me of that first day!” In the deep-end of the resort’s dive-pool, the bride-to-be said ‘yes’ with surprise and elation
Equally elated for the newly-engaged couple are the immediate family members who were on hand to witness the event unfold. The French-Canadian couple is already making plans to have their wedding on the island at a later date.
