Caroline and Ryan
How We Met
We have known each other for 8 years and were really good friends for 1 year before we started dating. We started dating our senior year in high school and even went to prom together. We have grown up together and have been able to deal with all the twists and turns life threw at us. We started traveling together a few years ago and the one place I’ve always wanted to go to was Paris.
How He Asked
Just the idea of Paris is so romantic. We planned the trip for last year and planned to be there Valentine’s day. Up until we went, I kept dropping hints that my ideal engagement would be there! All I got from Ryan was “No, it’s too cliche” or “No, you’ll be expecting it” So I didn’t get my hopes up. The second day we were in the most beautiful city in the world was Valentine’s day. We stopped at a cute flower shop where he bought me roses on the way back to our hotel.
We both got ready as we had dinner in the Eiffel tower! Another dream of mine! I remember saying as we had dinner “I know we aren’t getting engaged, but this is the BEST night ever.” We finished the most romantic dinner ever and walked the tower a little. When we left, Ryan turned around so we were looking at the Eiffel town, he wanted to “record the tower shimmering.” When it started, he turned to me and got down on his knee and asked me to marry him! I was the happiest girl in the world and of course, cried a little, but I said Yes!
