Cindy & Matthew’s Sunset Cruise Proposal

This Shane Co. couple’s proposal story is incredibly romantic, and we could not wait to share it!

Cindy and Matthew became best friends in elementary school, but did not start dating until their freshman year of college. The two have been together for almost three years now, and have fallen more in love each day. Matthew says Cindy is the most caring and loving person he knows, and that she always brings out the best in him. Every year since they started dating, the two have taken a vacation together. Matthew knew this year’s cruise vacation on Carnival Paradise was the perfect time to propose!


The proposal was a complete surprise to Cindy. The only people who knew about it were their parents and Cindy’s best friend. The cruise line helped Matthew plan when and where he would propose on the ship, and he hired a crew member to photograph the entire thing. On the evening of the proposal there was the most beautiful sunset. The two were walking along the front deck, looking out across the ocean, and just when the moment was right, Matthew got on one knee and popped the question. Cindy said yes! To celebrate, the two went swimming with stingrays in Cozumel, Mexico, the next day.


Matthew knew that Cindy liked halo-style rings with princess cut diamonds. He searched online and found the perfect one for her style and came into Shane Co. to see it in person. Once he saw it up close, he knew it was perfect for Cindy. It’s a gorgeous split-shank halo engagement ring with a stunning princess cut diamond.
