How they met

We actually met on a dating website! After chatting back and fourth we decided to meet in person. For our first date I took her to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. It was so wonderful that things just escalated from there and we have been together ever since. I couldn’t imagine my life without her.

How he proposed

Tyler and I decided to exchange Christmas presents before we went on vacation to visit my mother in Florida. He got me a beautiful necklace and a wallet. I packed both of our bags and the next day we left for Florida. When we landed my mom told us that we were all going out to dinner. I thought we were just going to a random restaurant but when they started driving us to the beach I was a little confused. We got out of the car and started walking toward a dinner boat! I have always wanted to do something like that so I was super excited! We enjoyed an amazing dinner on the StarLite Majesty dinner boat! We walked up and looked over the balcony of the boat and it was the most amazing time! The captain made announcement to come eat dessert so we went back to the main floor. After eating dessert the DJ on the boat said “Can I please have Tyler and Brittany to the dance floor!” I was so confused, but I went with it. Toward the end of the song Tyler looked at me and said “Are you ready?” And I said “for what?” Then all of the sudden he is down on one knee! He said “Babe, I love you to the moon and back and want to spend the rest of my life with you, Will you marry me?” I couldn’t stop crying and of course said “Yes!!!” I was so confused as to how he brought the ring to Florida because I packed his bag! I found out that he put it in one of his pants pockets so when I packed his pants I packed the ring! I cannot wait until September comes because I get to marry my best friend!
