A Long's Proposal Story: Abigail & Zachary

Author Long's Jewelers
Date Sep 28, 2018


A romantic walk through Boston ends with the best surprise! Read on to see how Zac proposed to Abby with a beautiful, new ring. On behalf of the entire Long's team, congratulations and best of luck.

How did the two of you meet?

"We met while working at a restaurant together. We were both servers and Zac trained me when I started!"

How did he propose?

abb-and-zach2"We had a date night in the city planned for a little over a week. He told me to dress nicely for it, and I had a feeling he was up to something! Once we got to Boston, we started the night with drinks at a bar I really like. After drinks we walked towards the North End where the restaurant we had reservations at was. On the way, we walked towards the water through Christoper Columbus Park (across from the carousel at Faneuil Hall). We were walking through and came to a fountain when he said, 'Let’s sit for a minute.' I thought that was a little weird. Then I noticed something out of the corner of my eye, and when I looked, it was Zac’s sister (who is a photographer). I asked, 'Why is your sister here?!' and when I turned back to Zac he was down on one knee and asked if I would marry him! When I looked up, he had some of our friends there to celebrate the moment with us!

Unfortunately, I caught on too quickly so he didn’t get to say what he had planned. He told me later that night what he had been planning on saying was 'Abby, I love you so much, and I cannot express how much you mean to me. This has been an incredible journey together, and I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for us. The one thing I know is I would not want to experience it with anyone else, but before we continue the journey, there is something I need to ask.'"
