- Wedding: February 2015
I haven’t been on here for about a year because I decided to just let it go and try my best to focus on other things that were in my control. well….im finally engaged!!!! My now fiance proposed to me on Halloween this year in FL @ Harry Potter land!!! (Harry Potter is my favorite) We’ve been plannnig to go to FL for his brothers wedding for about a year in advanced and he told me that he promised he would take me to The Wizzarding World of Harry Potter! Well our trip came finally and and we arived in FL on Oct. 29th. We drove 2 hours to Orlando on the 31st by ourselves and I was so excited to finallly see the park! Harry Potter land was our first stop right when the park opened at 9am. Walking in I was very emotional as I was overwhelmed with the amazing detail of Harry Potter land, I started to tear up (SO was making fun of me at this point) We got my wand, rode on the main broomstick castle ride, drank some butterbeer and grabed a churro to sit down by the Hogwarts castle.
As we were sitting there SO asked me to take out my wand so he could take pictures of me with it, I was being silly and posing as he was laughing. He then asked me if I could take pictures of him with it so we swicthed the wand and the camera and he was posing. He asked me to count down from 3, so here I go saying 1…2….3 and took his picture. He asked me to take another one and as I said 1…2… he raised his other arm with the ring in hand and asked me if I would be his forever!!! I was supposed to take the picture (his plan) but I was so shocked and surprised that I droped my camera, put my hands over my face and started to really ball. I didnt even know what the ring looked like I just knew it was a ring lol. After 5-10 minutes of me balling and SO rubbing my arm, telling me its ok and to give him my hand (at this point people were staring and I think they thought he was fighting with me) I looked up and he grabbed my hand, placed it in his and put the ring on my finger :] It’s a moment I will never forget, one thats so special to me and seeing the ring for the first time was breathtaking.
SO and I never went in person to look at rings together, we looked online a few times and he knew the basics of what I liked but he picked out my ring on his own. He did all the research and all the “in person” browsing on his own except a few times with my mom going with him :] It means that much more to me that he took the time to really surprise me and that he picked out my ring on his own.
So..here it is!!!!
This is the first picture I took of SO right before he asked me!
I know the proposal was a few weeks ago but we just had our 5 year anniversary on 11-11-13 and my now fiance got me these beautiful flowers! So I had to take this picture!! :] I just remembered my Weddingbee friends so decided to share, also I just got a promotion at work so I cannot get off cloud 9!!!! I feel like the luckiest girl alive and I cant wait to marry my best friend!
