Paige's Proposal in Punta Cana

How He Asked

Alex and I planned a trip over winter break to Punta Cana. We had this trip planned for about 8 months, and it was only the two of us going. After being together for over 7 years straight I was waiting for this moment, but I never thought it was going to come so soon. We arrived to Punta Cana on New Years Eve. We spent the day at the beach and pool until it was time to get ready for dinner. On our way to dinner we agreed to get a picture by the beach before the sunset. He knows I LOVE pictures, so I thought nothing of it. He asked strangers walking by to take our “picture” which turned out to be a video. He got down on one knee, looked me straight into my eyes, and asked me to marry him. I have never felt so much happiness shoot through my entire body. It was magical and I could not of asked for anything more.
