Samantha and Eric

Engagement Proposal Ideas in Haystack Rock on Cannon Beach

How We Met

Eric and Samantha met in 2013 while in grad school in Los Angeles. Little did they know they grew up 8 miles from each other in Roswell, Georgia…2,200 miles away! After dating for 4 years Eric decided to ask Samantha to marry him.

How He Asked

He used the diamonds from his late Grandma’s engagement ring to custom design Samantha’s engagement ring. After 3 months of designing the time came to pop the question. Eric planned to ask Samantha to marry him at sunrise on a train on the way to a vacation in Portland, Oregon. Three days before they left for vacation Eric got word that the train trip was canceled due to a downed bridge.

He thought quickly and bought plane tickets to Portland instead. Their second day in Portland Eric woke Samantha up at 4 am to drive to Cannon Beach for the sunrise. While taking in the views on the beach, Eric asked a passerby to take a picture of him with Samantha in front of Haystack Rock. After the first picture, Eric said, “actually, could you take one more photo?” That is when he got down on one knee and proposed to Samantha! She was so thrilled and excitedly said yes, of course!
