Bethany Hamilton can’t stop telling the world how much she loves her fiance, Adam Dirks. After telling the story of her proposal on her blog, and even letting Dirks post his own account of the special day, Hamilton spoke with People magazine about her excitement for all that goes into planning a wedding, and how she’s already overjoyed with the surprises Dirks has given her.
Hamilton told the magazine that she found her ring with two coconuts, which are her favorite things to drink, as they walked into a beautiful garden behind a quiet beach that the couple loves to visit together. But the proposal wasn’t the only surprise in store for her.
“Later a boat pulled up to take us on a boat ride and snorkel,” she told the magazine. “We finished the evening to find my whole family and Adam’s really good friends at the dock to greet us and share a special sunset dinner on the ocean!”
Wedding planning has already taken full effect for Hamilton, though she still may not have her dress picked out just yet, according to the magazine. While she certainly plans on having fun gearing up for the memorable moment of her life, she can’t help but focus on what comes after the big ceremony.
“I am so excited for our wedding, but that is only one day to start the rest of our life together,” Hamilton told the publication. “I’m even more excited to share life on a deeper level faithfully as husband and wife.”
The amazing surfer will be keeping busy not just with formulating creative wedding ideas, but also her business partnerships, such as the latest with Be Your Own You (BYOU) and their new Signature Series apparel designs.
