DH proposed in Grand Central Station. On our 4th date, he told me while we were waiting for a train there, that he would marry me one day. I told him he was crazy, but just to prove his point, he proposed to me there. 🙂 His sister was there and without me knowing was snapping pics.
I love seeing all of the pictures!!! FI proposed one night when we went on a fancy date to see The Nutcracker. The first picture is of me earlier that day trying on the dress that I bought for that night with my sister.The second was a picture we took right after the ballet, before dinner. We were sitting on a bench outside of the theater because our dinner reservations weren’t for about 20 more minutes. It was beautiful and I thought that he was going to propose right then! When he didn’t, I convinced myself it wasn’t going to happen that night.
He proposed about an hour later right after dinner! The 3rd picture is the picture of the ring that we took to send to my Mom and sister.
Later he told me that he had thought about proposing at the bench where I thought that he would. He also thought about going back to the bench after dinner!! He couldn’t wait though 🙂
Ohh, my parents took pics as we opened up Christmas presents on Christmas Day 2008. I was totally clueless to the chaos going all around when the ring hadn’t shipped up to Milwaukee in time. It arrived on Christmas Eve as we were leaving the house. I only learned these stories later. I love the look on my husband’s face as I’m opening up the box which had a piece of paper in it that said “Say Yes.” I was stunned and then he was down on one knee at that point. He had the ring in the box in his shoe.
