Eric was insistent on stopping at the Bowhicket Marina for a drink, but when we got there, it was still during the day so it was less of a dive-bar and more of a family restaurant. He pulled me through the restaurant and we started walking on the docks where all the boats are, but I noticed he was pulling me away from everyone else. Then all of a sudden he slowed down.What an unbelievably sweet, and amazing proposal story! I am so excited for one of my favorite couples and can't wait for festivities to begin for what I'm sure will be a memorable, and epic, wedding.
He stopped and looked at me and said "I have a confession to make." and my HEART STOPPED. I was like oh no what is he going to say!!! But then he continued by saying... "Ashley and Joe aren't coming...I brought you here for another reason...because 3 years ago this was were I first said I love you and this was where I knew I wanted to ask you... (gets down on one knee) will you marry me?!"
Mal told me about a very interesting thing that Eric had done with her ring before proposing. Eric's jeweler had real, professional, high-res photos of the ring taken for Mal to have as a keepsake. Isn't that a great idea? Check out how gorgeous this ring is.
Well done Eric, well done! Here it is in action on Mal's hand:
And just like that, another wedding begins! :)
