Courtney and Victor's Engagement in Georgia Aquarium

How We Met

I met my fiancé on tinder. After a few days of talking we decided to go on a date. Picking the place for our first date was an easy decision. We both are obsessed with chipotle so it was a no brainer that we would go there. Our chemistry together was amazing. I had never felt more comfortable sitting across from someone I had just met. After that first date I knew that I had found the man I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. Who knew that two people from Ohio would find each other in Savannah, Georgia and fall in love?

How He Asked

My fiancé is in the Army and is stationed near Savannah, Georgia. He told me that there was a trip planned for everyone on base to Atlanta. When I asked him what we were doing he just told me we were going to figure it out when we got there. Two of his friends ended up coming with us and his friend Justin mentioned going to the aquarium. I love animals so I instantly said it sounded like a good idea. We get to the aquarium and he tells me that we have a behind the scenes tour planned. It was amazing. We got to see the penguins and whale sharks up close. I was really excited about seeing the penguins because they are my favorite animal. After the tour, the guide says we are going to go watch a dive show. We walk into this room where a ton of people are waiting for the dive show to begin. It starts and the host said there was going to be a game and he needed two people to play. My fiancé raised is hand to nominate me and him. We got picked and I have to stand in front of the tank facing the audience. The host asked us each questions about the aquarium we had to answer. The host said I had one more question to answer by that he wasn’t going to ask me it, the diver in the tank behind us was going to. It was at the point I turned around and saw the diver holding a sign that said “will you marry me” and my fiancé was down on one knee. I was so shocked that I couldn’t even say the word yes, all I could do is nod my head and hug him.
