How did he propose?

Once there, we had front row seats to the beatiful sunset, and Doug asked the waitress to take a picture of us in front of it. After she took a picture, he asked her to take one more and that is when he got down on one knee! The ring box got a little stuck in his pocket for a second, but it all worked out because it gave the waitress the opportunity to switch the camera to video, and she recorded the whole proposal for us! Doug told me he loved me and asked me if I would marry him. I, of course, said, "Yes!" Then we kissed and I could hear the clapping of everyone else at the restaurant who had been watching. I was so overwhelmed with love and happiness! It was such a special moment and the most perfect day! I cannot wait to marry my best friend!"

Tell us about the engagement ring!

"My beautiful engagement ring is set in rose gold with a half karat princess cut diamond  centered between ten small diamonds. It’s exactly what I’ve always dreamed of! I LOVE it!"
