April and William

April and William's Engagement in Our favorite restaurant, Barrique in Venice, CA

How We Met

My fiancé and I met in Los Angeles. I was a traveling nurse on assignment in LA and my fiancé is a farmer that lives just north of LA. After our first date, I called my sister and I said to her, “I just met my future husband.” We’ve been inseparable since. 15 months later came the proposal.. Today, I’m living in farm country with my fiancé and I couldn’t be happier!

How He Asked

I thought we were just going to dinner at my favorite restaurant with his parents (I’m actually the one that suggested it, so the surprise dinner that he had set up months in advance fell right into his lap). As soon as I entered the restaurant, I was greeted by a large table seating my closest family and friends (who live in multiple states by the way.. TX, UT, WA).

After the initial shock dissipated, I turn around to see my fiancé on his knee.

It was the sweetest proposal I could have imagined! My selfless fiancé paid for my friends and family’s flights, hotels, etc. just so they could be there to share this moment with me.
