- Wedding: September 2014
I’ve been lurking for quite some time! Friday was the happiest and proudest night of my life! My FIANCE (ahhhhsdflskdfjsdf) took me to a place called Brookgreen Gardens, which holds a festival every year called Night of a Thousand Candles. There were literally millions of christmas lights and candles all over the place, covering the trees, fountains, arches, everything you could think of. It’s a stunning sight, and part of me had hoped he would propose, but he is so incredibly shy that I didn’t think it was remotely possible he would do it with so many people around.
There was a pegasus statue surrounded by a pond and a little path around it, and we started walking that path. We both noticed the sun setting through a clearing of trees… just incredible purples, blues, reds and oranges in the sky framed by branches. He then looks at me and starts saying all these sweet things, but I didn’t really think anything of it because he always is so sweet… but then I saw him reach for his pocket and I realized. He dropped on one knee and asked to spend forever with me and be his wife, and I got on my knees, too (he felt so far away, I didn’t even think about it, just fell to the ground haha. He said it was the sweetest thing that has ever happened to him) and was bawling and said yes. I was shaking so hard, I thought I might topple into the pond. We are over the freaking moon and I am covered in bridal magazines!! Can’t wait to get some opinions and share ideas on the Bee! Thank you for reading, lovely ladies 🙂
The ring is incredibly special to me – both side stones came from my grandmother, and the center stone was my mother’s. It has two generation of women within it, and if I have a daughter one day, I will pass it along to her. The only thing I told my man was that I really, really wanted yellow gold. He delivered beautifully:
The thing was so glittery underneath the lights, I’m thinking of an excuse to go back to the festival again before it ends so I can blind myself again!
