Marriage Proposal Ideas in Charlie’s in Bayhead, NJ

How We Met

Dominick and I met at a local bar where we exchanged numbers and went on our merry ways for the rest of the night. We ended up casually chit chatting for the next few weeks with no pressure. Neither one of us had any intentions of getting serious, we just made each other laugh…

How He Asked

Fast forward almost 4 years later! We live together in our own beautiful home with the cutest puppy in the world named Teddy! So of course I hoped the ring was coming soon, but tried not to dwell on it. The day before Valentine’s Day was when it all went down…I woke up thinking it was any other day, besides being excited that we had plans to celebrate Valentine’s Day early with a couples massage and dinner. The day flew by and dinner was ending, when Dom asked me to go down by the lake that was beautifully lit up with lights. It was so romantic, and he grabbed my hand and told me how much he loved me and how beautiful I was. He pulled something out of his coat pocket and my heart skipped a beat, but it wasn’t a ring! It was a book he made of pictures of our little family including our dog. At the end of the book there was a quote. “When are they going to get married?” -Ted. That’s when he dropped to his knee and pulled out the ring box. At this point I was already sobbing and hugging him while he asked me to marry him. Of course I said “yes”, which he followed with “look up”. I stood up to see both of our families running towards us with excitement, and Teddy leading the way…Needless to say, that was the most perfect day of my life.
