We loved reading through all of the proposal stories we received during our 2016 Proposal Story Contest with Once Wed! Rachel and Rob are our winners, and their sweet story started at a barbecue festival in the big apple! Fast track to a few years later, when the couple decided to treat themselves to a Caribbean vacation after finishing their first half marathon together. They spent their first day on the beach, and as the sun was setting, Rob told Rachel about the real reason for their trip: he said they’d be celebrating that night, and proceeded to get down one one knee and give a heartfelt speech. After lots of big happy tears, the pair sat down to dinner and Face-timed their parents with the good news: Rob didn’t drop the ring in the water and Rachel said yes!
Many thanks to everyone who shared their stories with us, and a special thanks to Emily from Once Wed for helping us choose our winners!
