Our Proposal Story: Country Boy ask Submarine Co-Pilot at the bottom of the Ocean
I knew I loved R. and I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her, now it was up to me to do something about that. So, I bought an engagement ring from Blue Nile and set about planning on asking this amazing woman to marry me. R. is an adventurous and amazing woman, and is a submarine co-pilot, so I was thinking of a unique and memorable way in which to ask her to marry me. I asked one of her co-workers in his opinion where on Maui would be a great location to propose to R., in the back of my mind I was hoping he would say, "How about the submarine?" Sure enough, he suggested asking her to marry me in the submarine while at the bottom of the ocean. The pilot and I planned a day to do it on. In order to make the event even more unique, he suggested that we not let R. know that I was aboard the sub so that it would be a total surprise to her that I was even aboard. So, he arranged to have me sneak onto the sub in the front while R. was working in the back of the sub so that she wouldn't know that I was there. Fortunately, we were able to successfully get myself aboard without R. spotting me;I was wearing a backpack and a hat to disguise myself. I sat in the first seat behind the pilot. In the back of the sub R. was co-piloting. The plan was to wait until the end of the dive and get as deep as we could in that location, then the narrator would hand me the headphones and I would make my proposal. Needless to say, I was nervous, but excited. So, as the dive portion of the trip was coming to an end, the pilot stopped the submarine, I took the headphones, and the rest was up to me, well, actually, the rest was up to R., I was hoping she would say “Yes!” I had though about what to say in this moment and this is what I said, “Ladies and gentlemen, if you could direct your attention to the rear of the submarine, there is an amazing woman back there named R. She has a love for family, a love for friends, a love for God, and she loves me. R., I have set you as a seal upon my heart as a seal upon my arm, for love is as strong as death, many waters cannot quench this love I have for you, neither can all the waters of this ocean drown it. R., will you do me the honor and make me the happiest man alive and let me love you for the rest of our lives and become my wife? R., will you marry me?” She did make me the happiest, and luckiest, man alive that day because she said yes! After she said yes, I walked down the middle of the passengers while balancing on the seats and approached R. I got down on the bench, opened up the box that had R.’s ring in it, and asked her again, “Will you marry me?” Of course, she said yes as I placed the ring on her finger. What a privilege and honor to have an amazing woman such as R. to be my partner in life. The rest of the trip was spent in a dreamlike state because we were on cloud 9 at the bottom of the ocean.
