Stephanie and Sam

IMG_5656

Sam and I had been dating for 5 years. We recently bought a house that we’ve slowly been renovating and it had been a very stressful time for us. We decided to book a short holiday to reward ourselves for our hard work and to relax after all the renovating. On our first night at the Sheraton Port Douglas, Sam whispered to me that he had a surprise… he’d booked a helicopter flight for us out to the Great Barrier Reef! I was so excited and the next day turned out to be the best day of my life. The views from the helicopter were spectacular and I couldn’t help but wonder if this would be it, would he propose mid-flight? We snorkeled all day and enjoyed a boat ride back to shore, where Sam decided we should get some Moet and go down to the beach. The sun was starting to go down and the full moon was just starting to glow. Sam told me cheekily that he had one more surprise for me and I knew… I closed my eyes and when I opened them my dream man was holding my dream ring, asking me to marry him. I couldn’t say yes fast enough! It was the trip of a lifetime that I’ll never forget.
