- Wedding: September 2015
My amazing boyfriend of 5 years proposed in the most beautiful place. I have wanted to marry this man from the beginning of our relationship. Not sure if I can even explain my excitement in words. I think the pictures explain it all. I feel like the luckiest girl in the entire world to be marring my best friends!!
About the Proposal:
Lance surprised me with a vacation to San Francisco where he planned every detail. The vacation was absolutely blissful and something I could have only dreamed of. The second day he drove me up to Marin Headlands where we took in the view with a bottle of wine and some snacks for over an hour. He wanted to climb over to an area with no fencing to take a picture where he slipped a note to the only couple standing by. We took a normal picture and then he got down on one knee! The girlfriend took a video and the boyfriend took over 100 pictures of us! They turned out amazing!!!! I think I blacked out because I was so overwhelmed and happy. I saw the ring and immediately started crying even more. We ended up standing in the same spot for an hour crying, hugging and staring at the ring. That night he drove me 25 miles down the coast to stay in a mansion. It was INSANE. The rest of the vacation consisted of celebrating all over the city and Napa. When we arrived at my parents house back in Chicago to pick up our dogs, my parents threw us a huge engagement party with all of our family. I couldn’t believe it!!!! (He knew everything). We celebrated our 5 year anniversary last night and have been celebrating every single day since last week!
A bit about us:
He’s 26, I’m 24. We both grew up in the same town and were friends in high school. He was always the nicest, funniest most respectful guy i knew. We went to UIC together, he’s a Pharmacist, I’m a Real Estate Broker. We live in Chicago & just bought our new condo in April (We’re in love with it!) He has been saving for the ring for a few years and we probably went 4-5 times over the years to look at rings. He picked the ring out himself after months of searching for the perfect diamond. He’s a perfectionist!! I didn’t know when he would propose but when he told me we were going on a vacation to an undisclosed destination, I started to get insanely excited. I couldn’t sleep at night!!! He is truly the most amazing person I have ever met and I can’t wait to be his wife!
We plan on getting married in September 2015.
