It may have been a rough year for many of us, but there were still plenty of highlights that kept us swooning — Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s rekindled (and adorable) romance, Ciara and Russell Wilson’s lavish wedding, and Margot Robbie’s super stealthy yet sentimental AF ceremony, just to name a few. And that now includes Ashley Greene’s engagement and absolutely stunning ring.

Ashley Greene

On a gorgeous holiday getaway with her longtime boyfriend, Paul Khoury, the 29-year-old Twilight actress was enjoying a truly magical moment hiking through the forest and ending up at Bridal Veil Falls in New Zealand (we see what you did there, Paul!). And that’s when it happened.

Ashely shared what will surely be a treasured memory on Instagram with the message, “This is the most beautiful moment I could have ever hoped for. You’ve successfully made me the happiest, luckiest woman alive. I can’t wait to show you my unfaltering immeasurable love for the rest of our lives. #engaged #💍 #loveofmylife #futurehusband.” Swoon!

She also shared a couple of pics of her ring, a lovely oval diamond with smaller stones adorning the band. She added, “I’m SO lucky and SO excited that I get to spend the rest of my life with my best friend ❤️ but the ring doesn’t hurt either. It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen 😍😍.”

Congratulations to the loving pair!
