- Wedding: October 2013 - Tybee Island, GA
Well, i never knew this board was out here! But it’s just my cup of tea… I love my engagement story!
When it happened: December 15, 2012
Firstly: you can relive my proposal at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sct2-dzR0KM&safe=active 🙂
The Story: My FI and I planned a trip to Callaway Gardens (GA) to see the christmas lights they have every year. [ride a trolley or your car through thousands and thousands of lights] we opted for the trolley, even though it was cold… we wanted the full experience (or so i thought). He told me at the beginning that they let us get out at one of the scenes to take pictures. So we stood in line (for what seemed) forever. and finally got on a trolley (the last seat of the trolley before waiting for another one). And we bundled up in some blankets i brought alone, and we rode listening to christmas songs after christmas songs… come near the end of the ride; my FI said he started to feel sick… and i played it off with “well we will get something back at the hotel”. So we finished the ride and got off… My fiance got upset saying that “we didnt get to take pictures like the other people did, and our driver forgot to… and that this picture was going in christmas cards” and blah blah blah… So he called somebody and they told us to catch the next one, and we would get to that some drivers forget… So he said “well lets do it again, we aint got nothin but time”. Me on the other hand, just did not want to listen to the poorly chosen versions of the christmas songs again, and my toes were cold… So i told him “Babe, we’ve been there done that. and we got a picture on the trolley its fine…” and he was so persistant that we did ride it again… Christmas song after christmas song… but this time we did stop! all i remember was singing “in the meadow we can build a snowman…” and then some man coming to OUR seats and unfastening the chains from OUR seat only… well me being me (hate attention, and was very suspicious) asked the man “do you want me to help with everybody else’s chains??” and he ignored me and my FI pulled me to “take a picture” me (embarressed as i could be) stood there while he gave his phone to the guy; and we stood there (me cheesing like a dummy) and he said “hold on” and all i remember after that is him on one knee… and what did i do? i said “you’re such a dork”! [yea… i was embarressed and nervous and didnt know what to do] he ignored me and continued to ask “will you marry me?” well of course i said yes (with a load of strangers starring and applauding and cheering for us] ; and the rest was history…
Again, relive that moment in time [and my embarresment of calling my FI a dork while he’s nervous already] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sct2-dzR0KM&safe=active
