Rachel & Cooper: A Weekend in the Woods

holding hands with an engagement ring

Rachel gave us all the details on meeting Cooper for the first time as well as their campfire proposal in the woods.

How did the two of you meet?

We met through a mutual friend and I truly believe it was love at first conversation. He was so polite, kind, funny, and genuine. It wasn’t long until I was head over heels.

When did you know he was the one?

Within the first month of dating. He was so honest and romantic and truly swept me off my feet. I had a previous bad habit of dating men who were not very nice and he was so different from any guy I’d ever talked to. I knew he was my very own knight in shining armour.

How did the proposal go down?

We were away on a weekend trip in the woods. We were sitting at a fire about to roast marshmallows when he popped the question. I started sobbing hysterically with happy tears.

Tell us about the ring?

It. Is. PERFECT. The ring was designed exactly how I’d dreamed of it. simple yellow gold band with four prongs holding my Nana’s gorgeous 1.36 carat diamond that has been in my family for about 4 generations. I could not love it anymore that I do.
