A romantic beach holiday turned proposal! Read on to see how Nick surprised Nicole with her stunning, new ring in the Dominican Republic. On behalf of the entire Long's team, congratulations and best of luck.

How did the two of you meet?

"We met through mutual friends."

How did he propose?

"Nick and I recently traveled to La Romana, Dominican Republic to enjoy a relaxing week away together. On our second night at the resort, we went out for dinner and then decided afterwards to take a walk on the beach. As we were walking and talking and looking at the stars (as if that wasn’t romantic enough!), Nick gradually slowed our pace and the next thing I knew we were stopped just listening to the sound of the waves crashing with his arms embraced around me. A few moments later he began saying that life is a roller coaster, but our life together is imperfectly perfect and he and Rholand (our dog) want to make sure it’s that way forever. It took me a second to realize what was going on so seeking clarification I asked, “What?” and when I turned around to look at him, he was on one knee and asked me to marry him. To say I was over the moon is an understatement. After being in shock for a solid minute, I realized I had to pull myself together and say something so I finally said YES! We enjoyed the rest of the night celebrating with champagne on the beach and laughing about how nervous he was going through airport security, hoping the surprise wouldn’t be ruined by a random bag check. I’m so excited to spend forever with my best friend!"
