Get ready to have your heart melt over this adorable Shane Co. couple’s proposal story!
Kayla and Josh met in the 8th grade through a mutual friend, and it was love at first sight! For over eight years they have been inseparable and have made countless memories together, including backpacking in Colorado, road tripping to California and the Grand Canyon, getting a dog and, of course, their engagement!
The proposal happened while the two were on vacation with Josh’s family in Nassau, Bahamas. On the first day of the trip Kayla saw a pier near their resort and immediately fell in love with it. They ventured down to it, but noticed there was caution tape at the entrance. Their goal for the week was to somehow get on the pier and take pictures.
On the morning of the proposal, Josh’s aunt suggested they all go down to the pier, and this time, they noticed a security guard sitting next to it. Josh’s parents went up to him and quietly asked if he would let their son and his girlfriend walk onto the pier, but he said it was too dangerous. Kayla had no idea Josh planned to propose right there!
The two decided to just take pictures on the beach with the pier in the background instead. After Josh’s dad snapped a couple of photos, Kayla turned to the right and saw Josh on one knee! Happy tears started pouring down her face and she said it was the best feeling ever to know that she would get to spend the rest of her life with him. She said yes and the group celebrated with Champagne and a toast by Josh’s dad.
Kayla and Josh visited Shane Co. together a couple of times, but Josh was responsible for picking the final ring. He proposed with a classic engagement ring featuring a sparkling round diamond set in 14k white gold. It’s delicate with plenty of sparkle, perfect for Kayla!
The newly engaged couple has planned a June 2017 wedding. We wish the two a lifetime of love and happiness!
