WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Congratulations are in order for a couple at Cape Fear Community College’s graduation.
Stephanie Spina graduated and got engaged at the same time Wednesday night, after her boyfriend Jose Herrera proposed to her!
As they took a picture, Spina’s family held signs behind her that read, “Will you marry me?” Spina didn’t even know until Herrera got on one knee.
He says the anticipation was the scariest part.
“I’ve been really nervous all day to be honest with you,” he said. “But not nervous, because she wasn’t going to say yes, but because I didn’t know how she was going to react, and I didn’t know if she would like it. So hopefully she did.”
Spina did say yes.
Congrats to the newly engaged couple!
