- Wedding: September 2010
for those bees, like myself, who joined WB AFTER the waiting/engagement period… POST YOUR STORIES!! (i wish i had found WB in my waiting stages, so that i’d have the comfort of knowing there’s a support system!!!)
anyway, our story is simple and took me completely by surprise.
we had been househunting and talking about marriage for a few months, i knew he was ring shopping, but he kept me cluecless on the details and when, etc… in fact, every time i’d think i knew something was going to happen; my lil brother would call me up to burst my bubble. “your Fiance is doing a good job making you think one thing, when he’s prolly gona do another”
i tossed and turned all summer long… anticipating that it would happen “soon”…
but for as much as i thought i would know when… he caught me COMPLETELY by surprise.
On the night before our closing date, we had our final walk-through at our first home… Our realtor, Fiance, and I (with my notebook and pen in hand) toured the house for any last minute damage/etc. We spent time looking through each room, for any minor details we may have overlooked. Ironically, the master bedroom, is the last room that needed to be checked… as I came out of the master bathroom, Fiance pulled me in next to him. I pushed him away because I thought he was so excited about the house and wanted to kiss me. I was embarrassed about our realtor seeing us (not into major PDA), who was just down the hallway. But, he kept insisting… and said the most meaningful, heartfelt words I have ever heard in my life. I still couldn’t believe it was happening, even when he got down on one knee!
Obviously, you can figure out the rest of the story from there… but I really had no idea and he took me completely by surprise. My face hurt so much the next day from smiling 🙂
Our realtor graciously video-taped the entire thing for us, so we’ll definitely have to play it at the reception!!
I honestly didn’t think it was going to happen until we were moved in, with our pups, just sitting on the couch watchign a movie.. etc.. just us, cuz that’s how we’ve been throughout our relationship. In hindsight, Fiance told me that he did want it to be intimate, but he REALLY wanted it on video, so he had worked out the plan with our realtor… where we coudl have OUR moment and the convenience of it being on tape too! 🙂
