- Wedding: December 2014
Hi Fellow Bees,
I’ve been on the website so many times over the last 2 years dreaming of my wedding and feeling so happy for others! I don’t post that often but here’s my first as an engaged bee!
So On 2/8 my SO and I were over at his Uncle and Aunt’s house. Were just all sitting sipping wine and his uncle says so you asked her dad. I had no clue he had asked my Dad a month earlier but even knowing this, didn’t suspect a thing.
A little background….my fiancé is my best friend’s 2nd college. For 11 years I heard she has to meet him. Well fiBally her brother decided to do something about it and arranged for us toAbe at the same party/fantasy football draft. We met that night at my bf’s mom house and talked until 3am. We went out 4 days later to lunch and after 6 hours were politely asked to leave because they had dinner reservations coming in. Lol I knew then he was pretty incredible!!!
The next day my family, SO’s family, and my best friend and her family were all getting together to have dinner at my bf’s Mom’s house. We’re huge family people and my fiancé is my best friend’s 2nd cousin. So we all went over and had a nice dinner, we’re sitting and talking, wrapping up the night when somebody went to leave. My fiancé got up to shake his hand goodbye, or so I thought. I’m talking to my bf and all of the sudden, out of the corner of my eye, I see my fiancé on one knee. I knew right away but everyone else thought he fell or had a heart attack at first. Then everyone realized what was going on!
I hate that I don’t remember much from those 5 mins. I washin such shock and so incredibly happy. He said he wanted to spend forever with me and it only seemed right to do it where we first met with all the people who introduced us and love us surrounding us! I just cried, had my hands over my mouth for a good 3 mins, then collapsed into his arms, and then finally sat up so he could put the ring on. I was shaking sooooooo bad my hand knocked the ring box out of his hand anrather ring went flying. Finally I got it on my hand and everyone was yelling answer him….oooops. Of course said yes and started hugging everyone and making a million phone calls!
No one knew except my fiancé, his mom (who thankfully had a camera) and his dad! It was so perfect! I’ve always had this romantic elaborate proposal in my head but nothing could have made me happier!
Thanks so much for all your support! Can’t wait to have this as a resource as we plan. Our date is set for 12-12-14, we have the church, and are signing our venue contract this weekend!
