My fiancé, Rich, and I have been together for almost nine years now. Last April, he decided to plan a trip out to Cozumel Mexico. He is usually really impulsive about taking vacations, so I didn't think that this trip was for a special occasion. The hotel we stayed at had photographers on site. They would go around the hotel and take pictures of all the guests throughout the day and at night. They had a free couple's session that caught our attention right away. A couple would make an appointment with the photographers to take pictures, and then the couple would decide if they wanted to purchase a package after looking at the photos.
After our first night there, we decided to make an appointment since it was free and looked like fun. Little did I know that Rich had already spoken to the photographer and told them that he was going to propose to me that day! We met with the photographer out on the beach just before the sun started to set. It was absolutely gorgeous! I noticed that half way through, Rich started looking a little sidetracked and even asked him if he wanted to stop the photo shoot. The photographer instructed us to walk to the edge of the little pier so that he could catch the sunset. I was having so much fun, and at this point Rich was literally glowing!
Right as the sun was setting, he got down on one knee. I was a little confused because I thought Rich was posing for the next picture, but then he pulled out a gorgeous ring and said that he loved me with all his heart, that I meant the world to him and that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. I could not believe it! After being together for so long, I could not hold back my tears of happiness. He made me feel wonderful, and it was the best day of my life. Rich had been planning this day for 4 months and I had no clue. Best of all, we have pictures of that precise moment to look back at forever. He is the love of my life, and I couldn't imagine a more perfect proposal.
