"We're engaged!! Ahhhh!" Daniel Booko revealed on Instagram. "Can't wait to spend forever with my love and best friend @realniasanchez @missusa!!"

"#bestnightever #TheBookos."

Booko also provided a glimpse of Sanchez's platinum, two-carat diamond ring, complete with a red, white and blue stone in honor of her Miss USA title.

Sharing the same photo on Instagram, Miss USA 2014 Nia Sanchez wrote on her account, "We are engaged!! so in love with my fiancé @danielbooko."

For his proposal, Booko rented out the Suite Royale at the NoMad Hotel, a 700-square-foot terrace he decked out in flowers and candles before surprising Nia.

"She's thinking she's going to an event with friends [and] I will be there looking all dapper in a suit decorated with candles and flowers," he teased.

Instead, it was just for the two of them "to have an intimate moment ... then get down on one knee and propose, then pop champagne and celebrate."

Some friends were on hand to join Sanchez, 24, and Booko, 30, who met at an engagement party in early 2013, for a party to celebrate their own.

Alicia Blanco, Miss USA 2009's second runner-up and a friend of the couple, also Instagrammed "YES IT'S TRUE! @danielbooko put a ring on @realniasanchez!"

"@missusa is ENGAGED he did gooooood!" Alicia added. "More pics to follow. All I can say is that it was PERFECT! Such a fairytale to witness it."

The bride-to-be will represent the USA at the Miss Universe pageant on January 25. For a primer on that, check out these Nia Sanchez photos ...
