Hutton had been waiting for the right moment to propose while on vacation in Pensacola. After catching a redfish in the sound behind the Portofino Resort, he used the excuse that he was going to put the fish on ice in the condo and retrieve the can of bug spray for Abi.
Hutton packed the engagement ring in his tacklebox, and returned to the beach and offered the can of bug spray to Abi. She turned to put something in her chair so that she could apply the bug spray, and when she turned back around, she found Hutton down on one knee in the water on the beach. He said, "Will you marry me?" and all Abi could say in response to the shock was "Stop it! What are you doing?"
After coming back her senses, Abi said "Yes!" and the newly engaged couple took a selfie (as they were on the beach alone) and began calling family members to share the good news.
