1. Taking her last name.
"Early on in our relationship, Jack said he knew he was going to marry me, and so before my grandfather passed away, he asked him for my hand in marriage. He also asked him for the name “Solivan” (my family’s surname). When Jack first told me he wanted to change his last name to mine one day, I was confused because I never thought of that as an option. He explained to me that he had zero relationship with his father who had been a “ghost” his entire life. His father didn’t uphold the meaning or responsibility of a father, and he did not want to carry on that name. After meeting and spending time with my family, and especially my grandfather, he fell in love with our family and respected the man my grandfather was–and particularly how he held our family together– so that was the name Jack wanted to represent our family, he told me. It was literally the most romantic thing I have ever heard and opened my eyes to what love is..." ???? Love this meaningful proposal! Watch the video via the link in our profile ????
2. He had a ring... and a kitten.
"Ramie moved clear across the country to start a new life with me this year. Sometimes she can feel pretty homesick, and she especially misses her family's pets, so I decided a kitten and an heirloom ring was just what she needed (????+????). On the day of the proposal, she and I had plans to do family photos together. In the middle of the shoot, my sister (the photographer!), said she needed my help getting something heavy out of the car for the shoot. I walked over, grabbed the box that had our black and white kitten hiding in it and made my way back to Ramie. The kitten was not doing a good job keeping my secret and was heard before she was seen, but the joy it brought to Ramie’s eyes when I knelt down on one knee and asked her to marry us was one I will never forget...."
