- Wedding: November 2013
We have been planning on getting married for a long time now, even began planning a wedding. We picked out my ring together, and I have known he had it for months now (even worn it a few times lol). But he wanted to propose the right way and I wanted to be suprised, and boy was I. It was perfect.
We got up Saturday morning at like 4 am. We had decided to go on this hike that has amazing views from the top. We hiked up to the top and I took tons of pictures all the way. 🙂 The view was just amazing. You could see the other islands, and the water was beautiful. We went to the lookout and noticed that people had put locks on the fence around the lookout. We looked at them and thought it was weird, so I dug my phone out of the bag and googled it. Apparently couples put locks on it to symbolize their everlasting love. We dug around in the bag for a while but didnt find the lock he always had with him, but he said it had to be in the car. We walked around the top of the mountain for a little while longer, exploring the pillboxes that were up there, and looking down at the lighthouse. We took a different trail that lead to the lighthouse, and since I had wanted to see if so bad went around the fence to get a closer look. It was so neat! and I got some great pictures! We ran out of there and back down the trail to the car where he found the lock and a pen to try to write on it. After resting from the hike for a few minutes we made our way back up the mountain. We got the the top and we were looking at the lighthouse and taking in the views once more and he takes my hand and gets down on a knee. =D He said he wasnt prepared but then brought me to tears with the sweetest things anyone has ever said. Of course I said yes and we took the lock to lock it to the fence and on the back side of it written in pen was ‘Will you marry me?’. We locked it and now each have a key. It was prefect and amazing and completely worth waiting for! I am so lucky to have found such a wonderful guy! He is my best friend and I am beyond in love! I thought this was just too sweet not to share!
