Rachel and Dalton's Proposal in Pensacola Florida
How we met: Dalton and I were college sweethearts! We met six years ago during our first week of freshman year in college, as next-door neighbors. One night, I was having car trouble, so I went next door, knowing that it was guys living there. Dalton was the one who came out to help me! Then a couple days later, he and his friends invited my roommates and I over to hang out! The rest is history! We started dating soon after that and became inseparable. We both ended up transferring to a new school together, where we were both involved in Greek Life and the business school. Both of us being business majors allowed us to take classes together, and we even graduated at the same graduation!
How he asked: We were going on a summer vacation to Pensacola, Florida. That day, he told me that he had found a great restaurant by the beach that he wanted to check out, so he made reservations for our first day there. He wouldn’t tell me the name of the place, because he wanted to surprise me. (This isn’t out of the ordinary for us, so I wasn’t suspicious just yet!) We arrived at the LandShark Landing, which is right next to the Margaritaville Beach Hotel, and it was gorgeous! Being that it was our first day there, he wanted to walk to the beach before we sat down for dinner. As we were taking in the beautiful ocean, he got down on one knee. I was so surprised, but overwhelmed with excitement! Then out of nowhere, a photographer came up and started snapping pictures of us. I couldn’t believe he had thought ahead to find someone to take our pictures! Her name is Melissa Wilson, and she is AMAZING. After she snapped photos of the initial moment, we took a mini engagement photo shoot as well. The day was so perfect, and we now have beautiful photos to remember the moment for the rest of our lives!
