A dream come true moment, a Virginia man shocked his girlfriend with an out-of-the-box proposal 30ft underwater in the Caribbean Sea.
Ethan Studenic, 30, the guy who did this amazing stunt for his girlfriend, Morgan Whittaker, 28, who happens to be a social worker.
As we all know, popping the question to the love of our life is never an easy task. It’s always a tedious job when trying to find the perfect ring and planning for that perfect moment, and popping the question, waiting to hear her tell ‘Yes’, is all any couple dream off. But this 30-year-old Virginia guy and his friends did this perfectly together, and their urge to move mountains just to make his love extra special worked for them.
According to Ethan Studenic, he planned to propose Morgan Whittaker, who he’s been dating for 10 years, underwater in the Caribbean Sea. He’s been planning for it for almost five years, he said.
The 30-year-old planned the proposal for 5 years before eventually hiding the ring-in a shell to propose underwater final summer time during a scuba diving excursion. For the extraordinary proposal, Ethan even had sea glass from their first trip to Bonaire crushed and embedded in the ring.
“I wanted it to be a romantic proposal and I’m not the greatest at that kind of thing. I thought if I could go back to Bonaire, I could recapture that magic of our first vacation away together,” he said.
A Scuba diving is a shared passion for Ethan Studenic and Morgan Whittaker, inspiring the soon-to-be groom to ask for his future wife’s hand in marriage under the sea, using an engagement ring hidden in a shell. Ethan Studenic hid the ring in a case made out of two seashells.
Thoughtfully, Studenic had sea glass saved from their first Bonaire trip crushed and embedded into the engagement ring. Bringing the ring 30-feet down into the sea, however, would pose some unique challenges.
And like good friends, their mates swam underwater with cameras to capture their romantic moment. Ethan went ahead and made the proposal even special by making the ring with crushed sea glass that both of them had collected on their first trip.
Morgan Whittaker was surprised and overwhelmed when she came to know how Ethan had planned this special moment all this way without her guessing about it.
“Ethan introduced me to scuba diving and it is one of the things we love most in the whole world so it was wonderful to have the proposal in that setting,” she said.
The struggle of these men is commendable, however, the efforts of their friends and family who go all the way to capture their special moment, is incredible too.
Happily, she said yes and the two embraced, before swimming up to the surface together. Whittaker and Studenic will tie the knot in April before 100 members of their friends and family.
The couple first met at college in math class in 2008. The couple are planning to get into wedlock in April this year.
Ethan and Morgan, known each other for more than 10 years, are now going to be married soon like they had wished for in their high school days.
Although the intention behind Ethan’s idea was commendable, one really needs to be cautious before trying such things. Earlier, a man drowned while proposing to his girlfriend underwater.
