Demi and Luke

Where to Propose in Hot Springs, AR

How We Met

I’m a college student in Athens, Georgia but took the summer off to spend time with my grandparents in North Carolina on the crystal coast where I was raised. Luke is from Arkansas but got stationed in North Carolina and we met that summer on the beach. On our first date, he took me golfing and we spent time with each other every day from then on while I was still in town. Eventually, I had to leave to go back home to Georgia and we spent weeks apart when finally he was honorably released from the Marine Corps. On his way home to Arkansas to start college he stopped in Georgia to spend the weekend with me and he finally asked me to be his girlfriend. He met all my friends and family and they all loved him and so did I. He was my first boyfriend ever. After that, we went back and forth visiting each other which is an 11-hour drive we did every two weeks! We did anything to spend time with each other. The driving got old real fast and I gave in and we got our own place in Arkansas with my two dogs and a bunny. He knows I love animals, especially golden retrievers.

How He Asked

Recently we were looking at puppies and of course, he said no and we left the breeder’s house. I was heartbroken but little did I know the next day when he came home from work he had fresh pink roses and the little fluffy guy we saw and fell in love with. I was beyond surprised and then saw on his name tag it was engraved “Will you marry me?” Then he got down on one knee, with the ring of my dreams, and asked me to spend forever with him making him the happiest man in the world. I said yes!
