- Wedding: August 2010
AHH! As of last night, I’m engaged!
I play in my college’s jazz band (piano), and while I knew the proposal was coming soon, I had no idea that he was going to do it at my concert. We had gone ring shopping right before Thanksgiving – I knew he had the ring, but I was convinced that he was going to wait until after finals. We were 3/4 of the way through the concert when my director announced that there was going to be a PSA before the next song, and FI got up out of his seat and came up the steps. He talked about how jazz was the main reason that we got together – I was playing music in my dorm room and he walked by and decided to introduce himself. He said that he loved me with all of his heart and got down on one knee and opened the ring box (upside-down!). He asked me to marry him, I said yes, and everyone clapped and cheered! My parents were there and they got tons of pictures and video. It was pretty much great!
And he even took a nice picture of the ring ahead of time so that I would have something to send to people right away. 🙂
