Natalie and David's Instagram Marriage Proposal
How We Met
David and I met in Miami, Florida on April 21, 2012 at a sports bar while watching a soccer game with mutual friends. It was 70 degrees outside and David was wearing a coat, I’ll never forget that — why in the world was this super handsome man wearing a coat while I was in cut off jean shorts and a tank top?! Then he said hello, and his french accent won me over. David’s originally from Paris, France and I was born in Malaga, Spain with similar family backgrounds. I offered to cook him a Morrocan couscous dish that Friday night – told him it would be the best couscous he’s ever eaten. Mind you, I had never cooked a couscous in my life! I took that Friday off from work, spent the day cooking on Skype with my mom guiding me through her recipe, and voila! I successfully made the best couscous David ever had. Today, David and I have been together for almost four years and live with our 6 month puppy, Couscous. :)
How He Asked
David asked me on December 30, 2015 and I could not have been more surprised (you can tell because I was practically in pajamas and my nails were far from manicured!). We went for a walk with our puppy Couscous on Brickell Key, a beautiful walking path that has a view of the entire downtown skyline. David know’s I’m a big fan of Instagram, so he asked me if I looked at the funny Instagram account he tagged me. I took a look at my phone and saw the notification – opened it up, we stopped walking and I began reading.
The instagram account is @mrandmrshoneybooboo (the first nick name we gave each other when we started dating). I read through all of the posts, and then he got down on one knee and proposed with the most gorgeous ring in the world! Then we went back home and all of my closest friends were waiting for us to celebrate! Best surprise ever!
