- Wedding: September 2012
Jonathan and I have been together for almost 3 years. When I first met Jonathan, even before we dated, i knew he had a purpose in my life. Whether he was there just to get me through a tough time- or get me through every tough time for the rest of my life- he had a reason for being in my life. Jonathan is the type of person who can balance me and is all together just good for me. I am dramatic and outgoing and he is realistic and collected. I seem to bring out the fun in him, and he brings out the practical in me. Were good for each other. After we started dating- falling for him was out of my control. It just happened. We fell hard for each other. Together our life is just easier and complete. After many e-mails and perfect talk about our “one day” wedding… Jonathan proposed on a beautiful Saturday Sunset in Laguna Beach CA. My parents were there to capture the entire moment . All though the day was beautiful- I was being completely difficult. I had a horrible sinus infection and completely bare faced with puffy bags under my eyes. I wanted to wear sweats to go to the beach however he insisted that I looked cute in my skirt and to keep it on. (He really didn’t care what I wore, however he knew I would have been agitated to get engaged in sloppy sweat pants!). My parents insisted that we get our picture taken together by the water at sunset. I was eager to call my parents over to get in the picture with us because they were visiting from Ohio- so I wanted to take their picture! (they were really just trying to capture the moment of the proposal). Not catching on that he was proposing (as he was telling me how much he loved me and how much he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me), So finally when Jonathan dropped to his knee, it occurred to me that “OMG THIS IS HAPPENING!!” (as I kept saying that line over and over) . I realized why my parents were in on the whole thing. My 3.5 ct. ring is absolutely amazing but not as amazing as the man I get to spend the rest of my life with 🙂 The proposal was great, however the best part was about 5 minutes after when we were freshly engaged, with fresh tears on our faces, holding each other tight realizing that in that moment we just started a new chapter to the rest of our lives.
