How did the two of you meet?

"We were in Boston College Marching Band together!"

How did he propose?

"Patrick and I met in the Boston College Marching Band nine years ago, and we started dating about a year after that. This summer we decided it was time to make it official so we went to Long’s to have them custom make us a sapphire engagement ring. I knew the ring was in process, but definitely wanted Patrick to surprise me with the actual proposal! In early August we were at my parents cottage in Ogunquit, Maine for the weekend. Ogunquit is a really special place for us and for my family, so Patrick knew it would be a nice place to get engaged. He had picked up the ring that week and somehow kept it a secret from me. That morning as we got ready to go to the beach with our extended family and friends, he hid the ring in the pocket of his bathing suit. On our walk to the beach we stopped at my grandmother’s cottage to visit, but before we went inside he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! It was the perfect place to propose, and I was completely surprised. The photo is of us just minutes after, so happy to be engaged!"
