Toni and Ricky
How He Asked
Ricky and I have been dating for 2 years now and have been talking about taking the next step in our relationship. My birthday was on August 17th, and little did I know I would be getting the biggest birthday surprise of my life! I had a group of friends and family together for my birthday dinner at Margaritaville’s Hollywood Beach Resort. After dinner, they all wanted me to open my presents. Since there was a live band playing, they wanted to take the presents outside where it was quieter (I didn’t understand this part at the time) so we went outside and it was so dark everyone took their phones out and turned the flashlight feature on so we could see. After I opened all my presents, Ricky said he has one more present for me…and got down on one knee! when he asked me to marry him I just lost it!
I cried my eyes out and everyone cheered for us. When we went back into the restaurant, the pianist announced our engagement to the whole restaurant.
It was such an amazing moment. I will never ever forget it!
