“My fiance and I met in college. We were part of a recreational coed soccer team. We had seen each other, but never talked. One day we were on opposite teams and we both went for a header. I’m a foot shorter than him so you can guess who won. In the process he knocked me over. Everyone made fun of him for knocking over a girl, but that’s how we started talking. We started seeing each other around campus and talking more often and finally he invited me for coffee. We went on a few dates and then started dating!

We’ve been dating for over 2 1/2 years. Last weekend was my birthday, and my fiance said he wanted to plan a weekend (we spend a lot of time travelling). That Saturday he took me to Rockwall, TX where we went swimming, wandered around downtown, and visited a winery. As evening approached we went to the harbor. My fiance told me he wanted to do something we could only do in Europe. Right next to a lighthouse was this bridge and there were locks all along the bridge. He pulled out a lock where he had put our picture and we sealed it to the bridge. 

At that moment, a sailboat approached the harbor and he took us onboard. We were escorted to the front and given a perfect view of the lake. Ismail pulled out a picnic basket and we feasted on wine and cheese on this beautiful sunset cruise. As the boat starts to turn he gets me to stand up “for pictures”. He hands me a bear with a backpack that has a book he handmade full of our adventures. Next thing I know he’s talking about our relationship and gets on one knee. 

I was so shocked I seriously started crying (and of course said yes!). A hidden photographer came and took our pictures and he spent the ride back telling me how he planned everything.
As if that wasn’t enough, when we docked we went to a restaurant where all my friends were waiting to surprise me and we had our engagement party on the spot!

When I look back on our proposal I can’t believe all the pieces of a puzzle he put to make such a perfect proposal. Having to coordinate with the captain, the hidden photographer, and my friends and how much detail he put into every moment.”

While I was in school at Saint Mary’s College of CA, I had the pleasure of being introduced to The Yes Girls Events & I immediately knew it was something I wanted to be a part of! I loved that they were helping men bring their special question to life. After graduation, I finally had the opportunity to become a “Yes Girl”. I couldn’t ask for a more exciting job & I’m so blessed to be a part of this company.
