Lacey and Aaron

How We Met: Aaron and I met in Cape Cod, MA when we were stationed together while serving in the Coast Guard. We instantly took a liking to each other, but remained just friends for a few years until we both happened to be single.

How He Asked: Aaron and I took a vacation back to Cape Cod, Massachusetts to visit old friends. We went to a cookout one of the days and before we started eating, Aaron got up to make a toast about how much he appreciated everyone. Then, Aaron turned to me, got on one knee as he pulled a box out of his pocket, and asked “Lacey Nicole Hernandez, will you be my wife?” I had no idea he was going to propose to me and I was so surprised!
