Adriana and Andres

Engagement Proposal Ideas in Sanibel Island

How We Met

Our story began 9 years ago…Andres and I started our first job at our local movie theater. I was a junior in high school and Andres was a senior. It was my first week on the job when Andres walked into the office while I was closing out my register with my manger, he walked right out without saying a word. Right after he walked in again saying he was looking for something walked out and back in one last time. That last time I finally got the courage to say hi. That night I later found out that he had called a friend of mine asking about who the new girl at work was. From that day on we were inseparable. He’s my high school sweetheart and we couldn’t be happier.

How He Asked

For our 9 year anniversary we had decided to have a small weekend getaway to Sanibel island. It was our first time there and just planned a relaxing weekend. The Sunday before heading back home we decided to go watch the sunrise on the beach. This was no surprise to me because on previous vacations we would always try and catch the sunrise but most of the time ended up sleeping in. But this time we both woke up bright and early and headed to the beach, blanket in tow. As we were sitting there Andres stated he forgot the camera in the car and asked me if I could run and get it, i thought strange since he mostly would’ve run to get it himself but disregarded this and ran for the camera before the sunrise.

When I’m walking back Andres is standing in front of a heart that he made in the sand with the words “will you marry me?” inside. I couldn’t believe what was happening!

Right after he got down on one knee and said he was speechless. Then after of course he asked me to marry him and I couldn’t have been happier. I said of course!! It was perfect. To top it off he had asked an older couple that was exercising on the beach to capture the whole moment on camera!! So we both can forever treasure that perfect sunrise!
