Pentatonix singer Scott Hoying proposed to his longtime boyfriend Mark Manio on a beautiful in the Bahamas six months ago.
They shared the details of how that went down with People,
I have never met anyone that was so kind and selfless.
I have always just felt so comfortable with him. Right from the beginning, we would talk for hours about things. We have so many similar interests and we have so much fun together.
Manio chimed in,
It was so easy to fall in love with Scott.
He’s the most lovable, kind, caring, compassionate, handsome guy ever. I honestly fell in love very quickly. And honestly, every single day I fall in love with them even more. Every day just feels like magic with him.”
They were celebrating their fifth anniversary together in the Bahamas, but as gorgeous as it was Hoying said,
…it was the most nerve-wracking thing that I’ve ever done in my life. Even though Mark and I had talked about [the engagement] a million times, I still put the pressure on myself to make it perfect.
We bought rings together last Christmas. It was a romantic ‘under the Rockefeller Christmas tree‘ moment. We were in the lobby, and we saw the Cartier store and we were like,
‘Let’s get this part done!’
So Mark knew it was coming, but he didn’t know when.”
[Scott] actually played it perfectly.
He had a private dinner set up on the beach and it was so perfect. We started dancing and Scott started saying the most beautiful and meaningful and caring things to me. I instantly started crying and tearing up. Then he got down on one knee and I could barely believe it.
It was everything I could have imagined.”
