Abby and James

Proposal Story

Abby and James became engaged last winter just after a vacation in Hawaii. Abby had thought that James was going to propose on vacation, but he surprised her back at home the next week. James took Abby to go see the Christmas lights at Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens. Abby was unsuspecting as they went inside and walked to the Plunge, an indoor pool on property. “You’ll never take the plunge,” Abby said to her soon-to-be fiancé. They shared a laugh together and kept walking around. As they were enjoying the beautiful Christmas lights, it started to rain, so they decided to leave. James said he wanted to get a look at the whole place, so they walked down the road to the front of the house. He turned to Abby and said, “I think I’m ready to take the plunge.” She laughed and said, “Yeah right.” As she was turning around, he had gotten down on one knee. James asked Abby to marry him. They started screaming, crying and laughing. A security guard walked up to see if everything was alright, and he actually took their picture. “I wish I could relive that night over and over,” Abby said. Abby and James will be getting married next May. We are so happy for this newly engaged couple and wish them the best for the rest of their lives together.
