Chase & Carley Ozaeta's Proposal Story in Cabo San Lucas

How did you meet?

School

What is your love story?

We went to middle school and high school together so we’ve actually known each other since we were about 12. We didn’t talk much through school but years later I reached out to her on Instagram. She agreed to a date and the rest is history. Shortly after dating Carley’s father died of cancer and about 6 months after that my step-mother died of cancer. This all happened during Covid lockdown as well. These were some of the hardest times of our lives but it brought us closer together and she always kept a smile on my face no matter how tough things got. We have a goofy and fun relationship and we are inseparable. I knew early on she was the one.

What made you choose this proposal destination?

I didn’t want to do the normal beach proposal. The art district in San Jose Del Cabo is filled with beautiful colors, flagged lined streets, and its unique.

What is your proposal story?

The proposal was going to be a surprise. For a about a week before I thought I wasn’t going to make it happen because I’m a firefighter and a big fire broke out which I was on for about 5 or 6 days. I was stressed out to say the least. Lucy I was able to make it. The day of the proposal we got off our flight and grabbed lunch near the proposal site so I could know exactly where it was, Carley had no idea. She got ready and I was rushing her so we wouldn’t be late, she takes forever lol. She thought we were just going to be late to dinner. I sped over to the proposal spot and she kept tripping in her heels we were walking so fast hahah. We got to the site and I saw Fernanda, the photographer. She approached us and told us she was a local photographer and saw us and just wanted to take some pics for her portfolio, all part of the plan. She got us in position but someone was making some sort of documentary Or vlog where we wanted to do the proposal. So Fernanda did a great job of stalling. The whole time Carley was whispering to me, “what’s taking so long I have to pee so bad.” Finally the guy filming left, Fernanda got us in position, she said ,”this is perfect” which was my que to get on a knee and propose, and Carley was more than surprised to say the least.

Best tip for proposing in Cabo San Lucas

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! :)
