Engagement story: We had planned a trip to Aruba for our birthdays which mine is June 4 and his the 5th. On June 3rd, John had made reservations for a table for two right on the sand and he had already let the restaurant know that he was going to propose to me. Now have evenings like this was not out of the ordinary so I didn’t think anything romantically unusual. While waiting for our cocktails we took a walk down to the water enjoying the sunset. Then John got down on his knee and proposed to me. This couple saw the whole thing and took all of the pictures and sent them to us. It was very romantic and made us forget about our birthdays because we felt like we were celebrating something even bigger.

A destination wedding is perfect when it is just the two of you because the whole day is focused solely on you two. Go back home and have the big party.
