Samantha and Geoff

Proposal Ideas Vernazza, Cinque Terre, Italy

How We Met

Geoff and I met in 2012, while in highschool together. We met over the summer through friends and continued hangout and became friends, until finally Geoff asked to be official on my birthday. We were just 15 and 16 when we met and Geoff and I became not only boyfriend and girlfriend but best friends. Geoff and I transitioned from highschool to long distance while I was attending college, to moving and attending the same university together.

How He Asked

During this past year we decided to take a semester off and go travelling for 5 weeks. During the five weeks we travelled to Rome, Cinque Terre, Interlaken, Amsterdam, Paris, Munich, Salzburg, a Village in Tuscany, and Venice. While on our last night in the beautiful village of Vernazza Italy, we sat on a beach to enjoy some pizza, the incredible view and each others company. We sat on the beach watching the sunset for hours and then in the most beautiful lighting of the sun Geoff turned me around and got down on one knee. He asked me to be his wife, and to spend the rest of our lives together. I could not have been more surprised or more excited. After he proposed we sat and watched the rest of the sunset, where he told me how he hid the ring for five months and even asked both my parents permission and blessing. Geoff also told me how he set a GoPro up and that he got the whole proposal and sunset on video. He also told me how the heck he snuck it to Europe without me having even the slightest clue and hid the ring for so long. I could not be more excited to start this new adventure together and continue sharing my life with him. We are both so thankful and lucky to have met back in highschool and to have grown together, we both are so excited for all there is to look forward to in our future.
