Snuggles on the Beach

June 20, 2018 Williamsburg, Virginia

Some of our favorite engagement stories have a bit of history to them, so when we read Selna and John's accompanied with sweet photos from Katherine Sparks Photography, we just smiled big. When you have been together for 13 years since young teenagers, there's a beauty about growing up together and facing life's changes as a couple. It also means that John's proposal was going to be perfectly tailored to his future wife's personality. Let's hear it directly from Selna though!

We usually take an Outer Banks vacation each year with our family and friends, so it's always been our home away from home. Little did I know though, John was already planning that year's Outer Banks trip way before I had even begin to think about it.

One day, John secretly planned to have all of us girls hang out while the guys would help him set up for the magical evening. The girls and I decided to visit a lighthouse a few minutes away but it ended up being closed so we just walked around. After awhile, we headed back to the house, and when I entered, I instantly noticed how quiet it was.

We all walked up to the third floor since that was the house hang out spot. As I approached the kitchen, I saw candles and rose petals on the countertop with a note that read: "Go to the beach." My heart started to race, and I was looking a little confused and asked, "Who is this for?" Everyone was smiling and looking right at me.

I walked towards the beach and crossed the bridge. Once I reached the end, I saw John in the middle of a huge heart shaped out of rose petals on the sand, and everything was lit up with candles. Surrounding John were my parents and our family and friends. And no sooner later, John got down to one knee and popped the infamous question. And my response, "YES... finally!"
