- Wedding: July 2015
So a few months back I mentioned that my ring was on the way, and FI gave me my Claddagh ring in the meantime until my sparkly little beauty arrived. Then I got so busy between school and my photo business, so I haven’t been posting updates on the Bee (I’m going to get back into the swing of it, I swear!)
Well… I got the ring!! And on top of that, I got the ‘real’ proposal that FI had been plotting since a few months into our relationship!
He came to pick me up from work, and when I came home, he stopped me in the hallway to our room. Opened the door to the room (but I had my back to it, so I couldn’t see what was inside), and then asked me “Princess, [my nickname], will you be by Queen?”. When I turned around, here were a bunch of pink and red rose petals on the floor, with the red ones spelling out “Will you marry me”. I had to do a double-take when I saw it, it was amazing! (Took him 51 roses to do it, a couple hours of plucking the petals, and a couple hours to position them). Drying the petals and mounting them in a vase as a keepsake <3
