Eric's Proposal Story in Cabo San Lucas

What is your love story?

I don’t believe that anyone ever expects or anticipates to meet their soul mate, but as you spend time with the person and time goes by, you start to realize that you wouldn’t want to live life without your significant other. I knew Lindzie was the one because asides from the awesome spelling of her name, she became someone I loved, someone I would deeply miss when she was away, and someone who I just couldn’t get enough of. I wanted to feel her touch, her presence, and her illuminating personality with me at all times and that was when I realized, “I don’t think life would be worth living without her by my side”.

What made you choose this proposal destination?

I had been to Cabo before in the past but Lindzie had not. It is a beautiful, astonishing place with sun-kissed beaches , mesmerizing blue waters, and weather we just don’t get at home. We both enjoy tropical destinations, warmer temperatures, and tend to appreciate vacations which are more relaxing and laid back.

What is your proposal story?

We made dinner reservations at the nicest restaurant at our resort for the evening, so she was already getting ready but did not know what to expect. I said that I wanted to go to the beach at our resort to view the sunset and we both had noticed the unique rock formation towards the right side of the beach property (made known to me by my Flytographer photographer Fernanda). Before our trip my sister made a planted comment about wanting us to bring back a seashell from our trip so this was another incentive for us to go down to the beach that evening. When we got to the sandy beach the sun was right behind us setting right between the rocks, creating a stunning, golden backdrop. I told my girlfriend to find someone to take our picture and there our photographer was waiting, acting as an unknown stranger. As my girlfriend ran back to get in place, I was digging around in the sand and pulled out an oyster shell which I had brought with me. My girlfriends first reaction was just a statement about it being a cool shell, “how did you find that”, and told me to take it home for my sister. I told her to open the shell and once she did she paused, went into a slight state of shock, and covered her mouth. The engagement ring was contained within the shell and she started shaking, then jumped up and down excitedly and then fell to her knees as well. Happy to say she said yes! :)
