Engaged in paradise!

Recommended Posts

I've been asked to share my engagement story so here it goes. :) 

 

I traveled to Hawaii with my boyfriend (at the time) for one of my close friend's wedding. We arrived  several days prior to the wedding so we could spend some time with all of our close friends and their partners to do some sight-seeing. So the day after we arrived, we decided to hike Diamond Head Crater Park early in the morning. The hike up took us a little less about an hour, as we stopped to admire the view along some of the points and take photos. At the top of the crater there was a lookout and then a ladder up to a smaller platform elevated a bit higher. While my friends looked around on the lower area, my boyfriend and I admired the view from this smaller platform and took lots of pictures. Then he told me he wanted to read me something. He pulled out a folded piece of paper from his pocket and started to read a poem. I thought it was just the romantic in him sharing either a poem he found or some song lyrics, but the very last line he read was, "There's only one question in the world I want to ask you now....." and pulled out a ring from his pocket, got down on one knee, and continued, "Will you marry me?"

 

I pretty much cried and hyperventilated, forgetting to say yes until a woman who was on the platform with us screamed when she noticed what was happening, demanded we give her partner the camera, and then told my fiance to get down on his knee again so they could take a picture. At that point she asked, "Did she say yes?? Did you say yes??" I was still crying but I said yes emphatically. My friends soon came up to get us to go (they had no idea what had happened) so I told them what had just transpired. They celebrated with me and then the word spread to the lower level apparently as I heard everyone clap and cheer. Needless to say, I felt like I had wings on my feet as we took less than half an hour to get down to the bottom. :D My fiance did an excellent job of surprising me and I couldn't have thought of a better place to be proposed to than on top of an extinct crater with the view of the blue ocean and downtown Waikiki in the distance. I felt like I was on top of the world. :)  Here's one of the pictures of the view we had.

*Oops! Pardon the error. "The hike up took us a little less about an hour..." should have been "The hike up took us a little less than an hour...."

Thanks for sharing Pucca. Love the surprise element. I'm sure you're not the only one who forgot to say yes (my FI had to ask twice sincexi was so overwhelmed with emotion) Diamond Head is absolutely beautiful. What a great place to have such a wonderful memory. And awesome that you had your friends to celebrate with afterwards. Congratulations again, and happy planning. It may seem like a long way off, but time is going to fly.

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
