I got engaged June 28. So I think it’s fairly recent. He proposed at the airport. We had been long distance for nearly a year and he just got offered a job back in the state where I live in. I was flying in to do the cross country move with him (Cali to Florida). So I arrive at the airport and he tells me to walk to a specific terminal. when I arrive I am standing wondering what is going on when I hear music playing (the song marry me) he recorded it and played it on the piano and was singing it to me. he wanted to ask me to marry him at the exact spot that our relationship grew. He actually had a person that work for American airlines record the whole thing.

I got engaged on August 15th! We were in Hawaii and it happened on top of Diamond Head! It was our second time to Hawaii and that was by far our favorite place so we had to go back. He waited to do it on Diamond Head because my parents (both deceased) went on their honeymoon there and had a ton of pics of Diamond Head. The ring we designed with my mom’s and his mom’s (also deceased) diamonds was not finished, and still isn’t finished, so he proposed with a pretty pear halo and his mom’s diamond band as a stand in. We already had our wedding planned way before the proposal and we’re eloping to Bora Bora so nothing too hectic there. Unfortunantly, my grandfather passed away about an hour after our plane took off from Hawaii and we found out the next morning when we landed. I never got to tell him we were engaged. So jumping into planning a funeral is a lot less exciting than planning a wedding. Anyways, sorry for getting sad haha here is a picture of the proposal! 

Before: He was so nervous and holding on to the ring in his pocket haha

The proposal:

And some of our engagement pics we got the night of the proposal:
