When Martha Mendez went to get her nose pierced and some ink done by tattoo artist Tony Nguyen, little did she know that she had just met her future BF and fianc茅. The two shared their very first date under the stars at Balboa Island in Newport Beach, where they stayed up until 4am talking and listening to acoustic music. Martha knew then and there that she loved Tony. Though they watched the ferris wheel go round and round that day, they wouldn鈥檛 actually go on the ride until he proposed.

Tony decided that the place needed to be somewhere special, some place meaningful, so where they had their very first date was perfect. After two weeks of planning between Tony and Martha鈥檚 BFF Valerie, it came time to revisit the island.

On October 31st, the day of their first date three years ago, Tony took Martha back to Balboa Island for the ride of her life. Of course, they were dressed up in the cutest couple costumes ever (Mary Poppins + Bert) in the spirit of Halloween. When they finally reached the very top, Tony popped the question.

Because Martha had sensed Tony was acting a little odd and seemed to be in an 鈥渆xtra chipper mood,鈥 her immediate reaction was to burst into laughter saying, 鈥淚 knew it! I knew it! I had a feeling!鈥 Eventually she said yes, shed a few tears and sealed the deal with a kiss. Their proposal came together perfectly full-circle, from their first date to the next step in their shared adventure.
