Alex and Liz's Beach Proposal

How We Met: We met at a Saint Patrick’s Day party that I didn’t want to go to, but my friend had convinced me to go anyway. I am so thankful she convinced me to go because Alex and I have been together ever since. I knew that as soon as he walked through the door that he was going to be the one I spent my life with.

How He Asked: On our 5th Anniversary this year Alex took Riley (our dog) and I to the beach for family beach day. We had a lot of fun playing with Riley on the beach because it was Riley’s first time going to the beach. As we were leaving, Alex and Riley totally ditched me and I was stuck packing up the towels and everything. I soon realized it was a trick to slow me down on purpose. As I was walking to catch up with them Alex was on one knee and with Riley by his side, he asked me to marry him! Obviously I said yes, I mean how could you say no to Riley holding my ring attached to his collar with a sea shell and ribbon? Cutest thing ever. I couldn’t be happier!
