- Wedding: September 2013
On Thursday, November 24, 2011, Nick set up a “Christmas” photoshoot for us with Lou Torres (a photographer friend of ours). I didn’t think much of it because every year we do Christmas photos.
About 30 minutes into the shoot, Lou said “are you ready?” and Nick replied yes. Again, I didn’t think much of it. Nick then took my hands and said “Bella as you probably already figured out I didn’t bring you here for just photos” and I thought he was kidding so I laughed and said “No don’t joke about this” and pulled back away from him. He then grabbed me by my hand and pulled me back to him, I knew at that moment that he was serious. He told me that he loved me very much and that since the day he met me he had wanted to do nothing but make me smile. He said that he wanted us to be together for the rest of our lives, but the rest of our lives couldn’t begin until I answered his one question. Nick then proceeded to get down on one knee and asked me if I would marry him. He pulled out a big silver box that was engraved on top. It said “Bella, Today is only the beginning.” Inside that box was a BEAUTIFUL diamond ring with two aquamarine accent stones, one on each side. I then said yes, and jumped what I believe to be about two feet into the air and hugged him so tight and kept kissing him.
I can’t wait to marry him!
