While admiring the views from the lanai area of their newly purchased villa home at Latitude Margaritaville Hilton Head , John surprised Brenda when he suddenly dropped to one knee and proposed . And she said “ yes !” “ We had been planning an engagement but I was truly surprised at the moment he chose ,” says Brenda .

The big moment was captured by Latitude Margaritaville sales team member Bruce Quinn who snapped a photo of the happy couple . “ It was meant to be ,” says Bruce . “ As we walked into the under construction Tortola villa for a look , John saw the view from the lanai and says he knew this was the one and that this was the time for the big question . John quietly handed me his phone and said , ‘ catch this .’ It had been raining all day but just as Brenda said ‘ yes ,’ the sun came out . It was a powerful moment to say the least .” John and Brenda are beyond excited about their new home and community .

John has loved the Hilton Head area for a long time . “ About 10 years ago , I went to Hilton Head for the first time , and I said this area is where I want to live and where I ’ m going to retire ,” he notes .

“ We really appreciate the kindness of the people at Latitude Margaritaville ,” says Brenda . “ We really enjoyed the atmosphere there and everyone from the sales team , the bus driver , the designer who helped us pick our interior treatments , just everyone . The quality of the homes is definitely way above other homes we looked at , and there are so many amenities . Everything has fallen into place so quickly and easily .”

The nuptials will take place on May 21 in the couple ’ s home state of Ohio where they will live until their new Latitude Margaritaville Hilton Head villa is finished and ready for the future Mr . and Mrs . to move in .
