Below Deck Mediterranean alum Anastasia Surmava got engaged a couple of days ago, and the Below Deck family couldn’t be happier for her.

Anastasia was introduced on Below Deck Med Season 4 as a stew turned chef. The bond she created with Hannah Ferrier and Aesha Scott remains one of the closest friendships ever developed on the show.

Although she’s moved on from yachting, Anastasia stays involved with Below Deck via Galley Talk. Today though, it’s not her reality TV moments that have her friends gushing. It’s her happiness with fiance Will Higginson.

Anastasia had one of the best weekends of her life with friends at a lake house in her home state of Vermont. Will asked her to marry him on the deck in front of the lake, with one of their friends capturing the moment.

“Wait till the end,” Anastasia captioned the Instagram video featuring highlights from the weekend, including her engagement and revealing her stunning ring.

The Instagram post had several Below Deck alums pop up in the comments section of Anastasia’s engagement news. Hannah, Jessica More, Heather Chase, Courtney Skippon, and Bugsy Drake oozed excitement for Anastasia and her man.

Will also used Instagram to reveal that he asked, and Anastasia said yes. He shared a picture of her kissing him, another showing off the ring, and the last week from the moment he asked her to marry him.

“SHE SAID YES! ??,” Will perfectly captioned the Instagram post.

Just like with Anastasia’s engagement reveal, some familiar faces showed up in the comments section to send their love and congratulations. Heather Chase, who was friends with Anastasia before she was another chief stew on Below Deck Season 9, had a message for the couple.

Tanner Sterback and Ciara Duggan also appeared in the comments with love for Anastasia and Will.
