Emily and Zac

Emily and Zac's Engagement in on stage at the theater on a cruise ship

How We Met

Zac and I met in middle school at a local roller skating rink. It was the popular place to hang out and we both would go with all of our friends. We had been friends ever since, but never actually started dating. We lived in different towns, went to different high schools and ended up reconnecting sophomore year of college at a starbucks. I think that’s when we both decided we were right for eachother and that we should give it a shot.

How He Asked

We have officially been dating for almost three years. We recently took a cruise to the Bahamas with his family, and on the second night, the ship was having a formal night. We all got dressed up to go to a broadway show at the theater and to dinner afterwards. Little did I know, Zac had other plans. About 10 mins before the show ended, he told me he had to go to the bathroom. He got up and never came back, and the show ended. I figured he was waiting outside for the crowd to clear out. The cruise director came out and started thanking everyone for coming out tonight, and then asked if I was in the audience. He told me to come up on the stage because my boyfriend had something to say. I was in shock, and at that point Zac was standing in front of me in front of the theater full of people. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was the most magical moment I have ever felt, saying yes to the man of my dreams. We couldn’t be happier and it’s a memory we will cherish forever.
