Dallas Peyton of Hammonton said yes to her boyfriend of 7½ years, Steven James Tortu of Waterford, when he proposed on his boat anchored on the sandbar in the bay off the Ship Bottom boat ramp Aug. 24. His surprise plan to pose the big question at sunset, with friends and family waiting on nearby boats for the couple to arrive, was executed to perfection. Said his mother, Colleen Tortu, “He wanted us to experience his proposal with him in a silhouette, just as our photo shows. He timed everything perfect!” The couple, whose favorite place is that Ship Bottom sandbar known for its boat party on summer weekends, plans to reside in Beach Haven West.
