Phil & Sara
Phil & Sara
Phil and Sara met during his undergrad schooling at University of Florida, while she was doing her undergrad schooling at University of Central Florida through Sara's high school best friend who was in the same ROTC unit as Phil. Upon his graduation, Phil was commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Navy, and attended flight school. As flight school took him through Florida and Mississippi and Virginia, Phil and Sara never stopped loving or traveling to see each other, even as she attended law school at Florida State University. They've been living together in Virginia Beach for a year now, with Phil flying F-18s out of NAS Oceana. Phil and Sara have been together since 2012.
For the proposal, Phil surprised Sara during a visit to a waterfall at the end of their favorite mountain hike. The waterfall was two-tiered, and they hiked to the top of the second falls and sat on a rock before the proposal. The leaves were just starting to turn and the morning was crisp, cool, and ours. Phil got down on one knee, and Sara started saying yes before the words could even leave her mouth.
The ring chosen by Phil was the Bedazzle, which he customized to include a light blue sapphire to match Sara's eyes. The ring suits them as a couple perfectly being uniquely theirs in it's playfulness and whim.
