Melanie and Mike were in Mexico when he proposed. Melanie had no idea Mike was planning to do this on the trip. She had just received a job offer she planned to accept before they left. When Mike asked her to pick a special night, during their seven days in Mexico, to go out for dinner– she just assumed it was to celebrate her new job.
“I didn't think much about it - I just picked Wednesday,” she recalls.
“We went to a beautiful French restaurant on the resort and I noticed that Mike was acting a bit strange,” she says.
When they finished their meal Mike suggested they go to one of the cabanas on the beach and have some champagne.
They both had a glass of champagne in hand when Mike started to get sentimental and proposed a toast.
“If you know Mike, that rarely ever happens,” Melanie explains.
When he said, ‘I was the love of his life’ that’s when I thought, he may propose!”
“I was getting excited,” she says.
“My excitement quickly faded at the end of the toast when I realized that he wasn't pulling out a ring.”
Melanie quickly hid her disappointment by looking away and gazing out at the ocean. When she finally looked back at Mike he was fiddling with something in his sock.
“Then I noticed it,” Melanie squeals, “a beautiful blue ring box, wrapped with a perfect white ribbon.”
“Mike opened the box and there it was the most beautiful ring I had ever seen,” she says.
“He asked me to marry him, and of course, I said yes!”
