An airport greeting to remember! Read on to see how Thorton surprised Deandra with her beautiful, new ring in London. On behalf of the entire Long's team, congratulations and best of luck.
How did the two of you meet?
"I met Deandra on a solo trip to Dubai. The point of my trip was to celebrate my birthday in one of my favorite places in the world. I wanted to relax and let go of any stress I may have had at home. When we met, the way our eyes connected was unbelievable. I fell in love the moment we laid eyes on each other in Dubai and heard her voice."
How did you propose?
"I have been secretly getting Deandra to describe the type of ring she loves for a few months. From Instagram pictures to passing jewelers in the mall, I found ways to figure out the perfect setting and style of ring she would love. Once I felt really comfortable with what I believed she would love, I made my way down to Long's Jewelers in Braintree. Because I'd done my research and knew what I wanted, I was out of the store in under an hour. Deandra is currently living in London so I decided to propose to her during my trip in September. I wanted to propose at the airport because the airport has been the place we have been the happiest in our relationship and have endured the most emotional distress. We're always ecstatic picking each other up, but feel the most pain when one of us has to leave. Once I got through security, I was greeted with her big smile, and was met with a big hug and millions of kisses. I was a bit scared because I didn't want her to feel the engagement ring in my pocket. We then made our way to her car and I proposed."
