Meet Abigail and JT, a local Maryland couple who had the most adorable proposal a few weeks ago that we just had to share their story. It all started when someone tweeted at us photos of a proposal on the beach in Ocean City. The couple was wearing our bathing suits. We responded to the Tweet with this Facebook update:
Soon enough we found out who the couple was, and they sent us this amazing story along with some photos!
We want to congratulate the couple on their engagement. Also, we can't help but find it totally adorable they had matching Maryland flag clothing and are repping Route One Apparel. That's a real Route One Apparel Love Story!
Here is what Abigail had to say in her own words:
Basically what happened was JT, my fiancé, enlisted in the army and we had thrown ideas around about getting engaged and married and what not but I had no idea what was actually going to happen. His mom planned a trip to the beach and I guess that's when he started planning. So, it was our last day there and his mom hunted down the scopes guy that morning and gave him the low down on everything. So, he showed up and took a group picture of everyone and then he wanted pictures of JT and I so we were taking pictures and he had me hugging JT from behind while JT was already on one knee. The photographer then had me walk around front as if I was going to sit on JT's leg and when he didn't give me further instruction I was just standing there and out of nowhere a little black box appeared in his hand and I immediately bent down and kissed him and when I came back up he looked at me and said "Baby, I love you! I want you to marry me!" And me, completely dumbfounded, replied with "YES! I will!" It was a complete surprise and I couldn't have asked for a better proposal!
